J. Bellange (?): Nu Academique Jeune Homme - Nude Male Youth - 1906

I had a few minutes this afternoon so I photographed the J. Bellange (?) Academic Male Nude that arrived last month. The subtlety of the color application to the figure comes through much better when photographed with my Canon 7D than with the sellers original post which was listed previously. I have done pastel figure drawings in the past and I love the way mixing various colors has different results on the paper. A nicely done figural study in a beautifully expressive medium.
