The Atelier Manassé was a photo studio in Vienna and Berlin. It was founded by the couple Adorján and Olga Wlassics in Vienna around 1924 (in the same year the first illustrations of the studio appeared in magazines) and it was operated under changing names, like Wlasics (sic! The first name of the studio), WOG (in Berlin) and Manassé-Ricoll (when assistants ran the studio in Vienna). The Atelier Manassé gained a high degree of popularity in the 1920s thanks to erotic and glamorous (nude)photographs, primarily of women. The artists linked erotic with surreal motifs in their photographs.
They also photographed stars and starlets like Rudolph Valentino (around 1922), Christiane Delyne (around 1931), Betty Bird (around 1926) and Lil Dagover (around 1930). After the death of Adorján in 1947 the glory of the studio faded.
