Two Nudes Standing (ca. 1850)[1][2] is the title of a photograph of French photographer Félix-Jacques-Antoine Moulin. The Met Museum argues that "absent are the boudoir props, gaudy jewelry, and provocative poses typical of hand-colored pornographic daguerreotypes and the stiffly held classical poses of photographic "academies" ostensibly intended for artists as substitutes for the live model. Instead, Moulin depicted these two young women utterly at ease, as unselfconscious in their nudity as Botticelli's Venus."
