"Virginia (nude)" (1933) by Edward Weston

This photo by Edward Weston will auctioned at Sotheby's in New York in the Photographs Auction, Session 2 on 17 October 2006. It's estimated at 12,000—18,000 USD. (Update: sold for 18,000 USD)

From the catalogue:

According to Amy Conger, 'There is no conclusive information about the identity of Virginia. She seems to have modeled for Edward on one occasion, and that was apparently in July 1933. She was tall with angular hips, heavy breasts, and dark hair. Although full-figured, she seems to have been involved with dance' (Conger, fig. 751).
