Current Auction House Listings: Nude Ephebes (Nude Boys)

Several of the European Auction Houses are currently listing works featuring the nude ephebe (nude boy) in their auction catalogs. I thought I would list them separately because they tend to get lost in some of the larger posts of academic nudes that I post. Enjoy.
