Unknown Artist: Male Nude - 18th Century Engraving

Unfortunately there is no decipherable artist signature on this 18th century print. The publisher is listed as G.M. Preisler in the plate but beyond that I do not have any information about the origin, most probably German or French in origin. It is printed on thin hand-made paper. It was most probably intended as an educational tool for art students to copy. Enjoy.
Caption: Male Nude with Staff
Artist: Unknown (Published by G. M. Preisler)
Medium: Intaglio Print on Laid Paper
Dated: Undated, circa 1750 - 1790
