Nude Male Youth (Knabenakt) Studio Drawing circa 1880

I picked up this nice late 19th century studio charcoal drawing of a nude youth this morning on a German web site. It is unsigned and undated but appears to be from the mid to late 19th century, possibly of French or German origin. Nicely executed with the white chalk adding nice volume to the figure. I will photograph the drawing when it arrives and post the results for your study and enjoyment.
