Georg Rank (1855-1938) Academic Nude Studies on Paper and Canvas/ Genre Portraits

This morning I found a large series of works by the Austrian Symbolist and Genre Painter Georg Rank (1855-1938) listed on eBay Austria. Rank worked for many years in Baden near Vienna, Austria. He worked as an established painter with his own studio near Gustav Klimt and Anton Hanak for many years. He created works in oils, watercolors, pencil, charcoal, and was known for some of his graphic designs. His favorite subject matter was portraits, nudes, and genre landscapes. Most of the works on canvas listed are a bit pricey but the drawings, seen by me as mostly quick sketches rather than refined drawings, are somewhat overpriced. The works listed below are all from the later 19th and early 20th centuries.
