FERNANDE: Parisian Voluptuary & Model Nudes 1910~1920

During her lifetime there is little doubt that no one buying French postcards of female nudes had any idea who the model Fernande was. With the passage of time and the interest of collectors and amateur historians, we learned her name and that she was a very popular model for the French photographer Jean Agelou. In retrospect Agelou made Fernande one of the stars of the "French postcard", her sepia toned nude body appearing in hundreds of different poses. It appears that Agelou never made a bad photograph of her!

Here, starting in approximate chronological order, from the earliest photographs (she was a teenager) to the later years when she became quite voluptuous. Click for Fernande in my eBay store.
