Ludwig von Hofmann (1861-1945): Badende Knaben (Repost)

This afternoon I was browsing through some of my past posts on this blog and I noticed that I did a not so fine job of stitching together the pieces of one of my favorite Ludwig von Hofmann works, Badende Knaben (Bathing Boys), so I decided to give it another try. I have managed to perfect a technique of blowing the originals up to large pixilated sizes so that my eyes can see where the original parts should be joined together rather than rely upon just guessing. The results are far better than past postings. There is a lot of movement in this pastel drawing even though the figures themselves are static in their surroundings.
