Amedee Felix Barthelemy Geille (1802-1843): Male Nude

Here is another nice 19th century academic study, an engraving this time. It is a product of Amedee Felix Barthelemy Geille (1802-1843) and depicts a male model leaning against several modeling blocks. Geille took the Grand Prix de Rome in 1832 and is famous for his illustrations of the collection of the "Historic Galleries of Versailles."
