Undressing Victorian Ladies 1887 – animated GIF file

Eadweard Muybridge was capturing some of the first sequential images, long before film was developed. I have almost committed a crime with my next animation, by combining Muybridge still images with vintage 16mm film. The result is this little spectacle of Victorian Ladies undressing:

      1. Yes if you look on my blog the post blue collection has two blocks with muybridge strips and the post les metiers the pieces the ophthalmologist and the doctor have some.
        I love the movement and the whimsy of them..I am very fond of the woman leaping over the chair and the naked girl with the tennis racket in particular.
