Ludwig von Hoffman (1861-1945) Dionysian Group (Meadow Dance) Nude Study ca. 1900

The Spring Auction season is in full swing. I have culled out quite a number of works and will try to post them as time permits. If you have an extra Euro 4,000.00 to get started, the Van Ham Kunstauktionen, Koln, Germany has a Ludwig von Hoffman pastel on vellum on offer for their up coming auction. It is a study for "Meadow Dance", circa 1900. Von Hofmann's works are always filled with motion and energy and I personally love his works. Enjoy.
