19th Century French Atelier of Hyppolite Flandrin 1860: Nu Academie Jeune Garcon (in the manner of Jules Elie Delaunay - 1828-1891)

I have made an offer on a beautiful drawing of an ephebe listed as "in the manner" of Jules Elie Delaunay (1828-1891). The majority of his drawings are stamped so this attribution may be a stretch of the imagination. Still, it is a very nicely executed drawing. Fingers crossed the offer is accepted.
The seller accepted but I have had second thoughts and several other really nice prospects have presented themselves. I will keep an eye on this and perhaps revisit it at a later date.
