Description from The Line

A protégée of Edward Weston, Ruth Bernhard (1905-2006) has become synonymous with her elegant reinterpretation of the quintessential female nude. This 1952 photograph, rooted in her keen awareness of lighting, composition, and balance, references the famed Belvedere torso. The boldly crouching subject lowers one leg, exposing her stomach and breast, while wrapping her right arm across her body.
