Karl Jobst (1835-1907): Male Nude Drawing, Ca. 1900

This beautiful male nude drawing by Austrian painter and watercolorist Karl Jobst (1835-1907) appeared on one of the eBay auction sites this morning. Jobst was a well known historical-genre painter in Vienna at the end of the 19th century. He and his brother, Franz Jobst (1840-1890), owned a well known and famous atelier specializing in architectural and commercial commissions. What caught my eye was that heroic pose, which reminds me of Sargent's male nudes.

Here is just a small sampling of his works:
