August H. Volker (1876-?): Standing Male Nude - 1905

I bought this nice male nude study by the German artist August H. Volker (1876-?) this morning from a dealer in Germany. I am always looking for differing poses in the models and I do not have one with this particular pose in my collection. Volker studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. From there, he continued his studies in Berlin at the Art School, Museum of Decorative Arts and the Academy of Fine Arts in Charlottenburg. He devoted most of his artistic to the Graphic arts and in 1904 became a member of the Association of German Illustrators. He also devoted much of his time to treatises on art education.
