    Amédée Vignola (1862-1939) was a French artist, best known as a cartoonist and caricaturist. From 1900, Vignola published books and magazines presenting drawings and photographs of nude women under artistic or ethnographic pretexts. A contemporarily description of this work would see them as in the erotic style of representing the exotic other. The “Album of Twenty-four Racial Studies” was reproduced by Draeger Paris as a representation of “the Racial Types in the French Colonies”. Most illustrations were drawn by the artist from life. The original Aquarelles were exhibited in Paris at the time. Printed in a limited edition of 1000 in English (with French titles) these albums were only issued to subscribers of “Untrodden Fields of Anthropology” in England and the USA.

    Some wear and soiling to boards. Small hole to spine. Plates have some wear and marks to the boders. Good Condition.
