Ernst Bischoff-Culm (1870-1917): Male and Female Nudes - Intaglio Print

I guess this is a 19th century male view of a frat party. A seller on eBay Germany listed this work by Ernst Bischoff-Culm (1870-1917) recently. The price is a bit out of my reach right now but I still like the action going on. Let's see: there's something here for everybody, girls holding hands with girls, guys holding hands with guys, guys and girls laughing, guys and girls holding hands, everybody doing the latest dance drunk on their feet, yup, that looks like a 19th century frat party to me! Anywho, Ernst Bischoff-Culm studied under Georg Knorr and Carl Steffeck at the Kunstakademie Konigsberg, later at the Kunstakademie Berlin under Hugo Vogel and Josef Scheurenberg.
