lulu  This page presents the infamous "Draped Nudes," as well as other early and risque images featuring Louise Brooks. A number of these images were published in the "pin-up" magazines of the mid-1920's - such as Artist & Models. Such publications - which mixed high art with scantily clad women - often featured film and stage starlets. Prominent among them were the actresses and dancers who appeared in George White Scandals, Ziegfeld Follies and other Broadway shows. For more information on the controversay surrounding the "Draped Nudes," see pages 114 - 118 of the Barry Paris biography.
