Niels Lindberg (1886-1974): Nude Male Youth - Watercolor Study

Self Portrait of the Artist as a young man (above)
A seller on eBay Germany has listed one of those rare academic nude watercolors I keep raving about, in this case a nude male youth. The work is by the well listed Danish portrait and landscape painter Niels Lindberg (1886-1974). I think the interesting thing about this work is the complete lack of background. The artist has chosen to solely concentrate on the subject's figure and ignore the background. The work, according to the seller, dates from the 1920-40 time period.
