Martin Nicolaus (1870-1945) Badende am Teich (Bathers at the Pond) 1925

Gallery Jacobsa Nurnburg, Germany, has listed a beautifully lyrical "bathing nudes" genre painting in their eBay store. It is a bit out of my league price wise right now after spending mega-bucks (for me that is) for that Baucke bronze but it is still a very nicely done painting reminiscent of the works of Ludwig von Hofmann. Martin Nicolaus (1870-1945) is a well listed German portrait, landscape and figurative painter. He is well represented in many auction houses. The fine folks of Gallery Jacobsa are very knowledgeable, trustworthy, and speak English if you find something in their offerings you like.
