Fidus

When was it taken?

The site where I found this image posted suggested it comes from before 1960--in that case the hairstyle and overt classicizing costume would suggest before 1920. The look of the photograph agrees with that. But if it comes form then it is unlike anything I've seen from that period and is quite remarkable, not only as a nude photo, but as a photo. I doubt it could have been overlooked by historians of photography. 

Does anyone know anything about this image?
