Herbert Grass (1886-1978): Zwei Akte im Tulpenfeld (Two Nudes in a Tulip Field)

Henry's Auktionshaus, GmbH, Mutterstadt, DE has recently listed this beautiful nude study in their current auction catalog. The original illustration on line showed some damage to the paint, with scratches and missing paint, so I did a scratch removal and cleaned it up, somewhat back to its original look. Herbert Grass (1886-1978) was a painter and graphic artist who studied at the Akademie of Fine Arts in Leipzig at the turn of the last century.
