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:

Here’s a lady for you that will indeed cause some locomotion! Strolling female locomotion, that is 😀

I believe the Victorian women were shy and private, so I have covered her artistic nudity in a bit of damask texture. The gorgeous and versatile frame was found on Leaping Frog Designs, and is an altered book cover from 1895.

Check out the original photographic plate by Eadweard Muybridge on Boston Public Library on Flickr.

Somersault Locomotion 1887 – Animated GIF file

Those 1887 photographic plates by Eadweard Muybridge of Animal (human) Locomotion are really worth studying! Those were the days! Imagine being that adventurous photographer pushing the frontiers of knowledge! Wow, it blows my mind. 

Wings of Whimsy: Running Somersault 1887 -  animated GIF file - free for personal use

Here is another handsome male specimen, demonstrating a running somersault. I have cut the first two frames, to make the GIF a looping sequence, but you can see them on the Boston Public Library on Flickr – original plate.

And Leaping Frog Designs has again provided a beautiful album mat frame. I am almost imagining this to be olympic with the torch and leaves! Well fit for our acrobatic Victorian hero 😀

Another fascinating male for your personal use and enjoyment 🙂
