Heinrich Susemihl (1862-?): Sitting Nude Boy - 1888

Well, there's a little bit of good news and some bad news. I programmed snipping bids for four of the Susemihl drawings but only managed to come away with one of them (below). This small drawing of a nude ephebe sitting on a modeling stool will be coming into my collection soon. I really wanted several of the other male nudes but I missed out. This particular drawing is signed by the artist and dated November 1888. You win some and you lose some.
