Philip Fleischer (1850-1930): Standing Male Nude - 1900

This morning I cranked up the computers and this drawing popped up on eBay Austria. One of my favorite sellers in Germany had listed it. It was listed at an affordable Buy-it-now price and I grabbed it. It is unique in that the model himself is identified in a notation at the bottom. The notation identifies the model as "Johannes Schilling." Schilling it turns out was a noted Sculptor.

Philip Fleischer (1850-1930) studied at Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld in Dresden and at the Munich Academy of Fine Art under Karl von Piloty. He traveled extensively to Italy, England and to Paris. He specialized in historical panoramas, genre scenes, portraits, and illustrations.
