Pierre Munier-Jolain (1888-1922): Female Nude Academic Study

A seller on eBay France posted this nice double sided Female Nude academic study by French painter Pierre Munier-Jolain (1888-1922). Munier-Jolain was a painter of genre scenes, landscapes, watercolors, and a commercial illustrator. He was a student of Jean-Paul Laurens at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He also pursued a course at the Academie Julian.

This study is particularly interesting in that it illustrates some very interesting 19th century application of paint and color, not to mention the color palette itself and talented brushstroke techniques.
