Joseph Uhl ( 1877 - 1945): Sommersonne (Nude Boy Standing on a Lakeside Rock) (Circa 1920)

A seller on eBay Germany has recently listed this beautiful etching of a nude boy standing on a rock, titled "Sommersonne" (Summer Sun). I have listed this artist on the blog previously and if you would like more information on Joseph Uhl, just search his name in the search form above. His prints are amongst the most detailed and beautiful that I have ever seen. He was indeed a master of the intaglio print. He specialized in children as his subject matter. The price on this example is a bit out of my reach right now but I can dream.
