19th Century English School: Semi-Nude Boy

This late 19th century academic study of a semi-nude boy came into my collection about ten years ago. It is unsigned and undated but originates from a late 19th century English School. I had to photograph it at an angle since a head-on shot had too much glare off the surface. It is executed on prepared canvas mounted on a large piece of wood.
