Anselm Feuerbach (Speyer 1829 – 1880 Venice): Semi-Nude Draped Male Study - 1850-51

Villa Grisebach Auktionen, Berlin, DE has just listed this beautifully executed semi-nude Academic study in their current catalog. Anselm Feuerbach (1829-1880) is a well known and well documented 19th century artist. The German description of the painting even speculates that based upon other similar paintings, this may be a self-portrait of the artist executed in the early years of his artistic career. It really is a fine example of 19th century academic works.
