From a set by E. Schneider, circa 1910, depicting models in a series of relaxed, informal poses in the great outdoors. Unlike his contemporary Edmund Edwinstone, the nudity in Schneider’s work is all deliberately discreet, with careful position of limbs to preserve the models’ modesty and keep the images relatively chaste.

Wax model of a decomposing body in a walnut coffin, Italy, 1774-1800: The body in this wooden coffin is in a severe state of decomposition. It may have had two purposes: as ‘memento mori’, a reminder of death, or as a teaching aid. The figure is surrounded by three frogs. Frogs are symbols of rebirth and regeneration because they change so much in their lifetimes. Wax modelling was used in Europe to create religious effigies. From the 1600s, they were also used to teach anatomy. The creation of wax anatomical models, centred in Italy, was based on observing real corpses. The museum known as La Specola, or ‘the observatory’, in Florence was famous for its wax collection.
