Joseph Reusch (1887-1976) Nude Adolescent Female by the Sea

I wanted to post this beautiful pastel for you because it falls into that rare category of female nudes you do not see very often: The adolescent Female Nude Youth. You more commonly see young males this age but not very often young nude females. Kunst und Auktionshaus Peter Karbstein, Dusseldorf, De. has this work currently listed in their auction catalog and because I have a ton of works currently on auction for the Fall Auction Season that I wanted to list, I decided to list it separately so that it did not get lost in the crowd. Josef Reusch (1887-1976) was a well know and well listed Orientalist and graphic artist who was active in the early to mid-twentieth century.
