Wilhelm Wohlgemuth (1870 - 1942) The Three Graces

Wilhelm Wohlgemuth (1870 Paris - 1942 Rome) was a painter, draftsman, and graphic artist who studied at the Academy of Art in Munich, Italy, Dresden and later Frankfort. From 1898 he resided in Rome. He was a member of the German Art Union and Free Artist Union. This is an original pen and ink drawing circa 1910 and features one of my personal favorite iconographic images, that of The Three Graces. You see it repeated time and time again in Art History. I found a variation of this same study in color and listed it below. I found this beautiful drawing on a German website and loved the graphic quality of the drawing.

Here are a few examples of works by Wilhelm Wohlgemuth:
