Vlad has provided an excellent over-view of this influential Viennese studio. I've loaded a few images here because Manasse was one of the demonstrable influences on Alfred Cheney Johnston's changing treatment of the nude during the middle 1930s. The surrealist dimension of Manasse in particular attracted ACJ, who in ENCHANTING BEAUTY experimented with irrational composite images using nudes. Besides the three images that I own, I don't recall the source of these photographs, although they may have been collected during the infancy of the web, over a decade ago.
