The Passion of Collecting Academic Nudes

Contemporary Artists: Johannes Grützke (1937), Jan Peter Tripp (1945) and Arno Waldschmidt (1936) - Self-Portraits in the Nude

I usually avoid posting contemporary modern works but this one is fine enough and well within the 19th century skill tradition that I will make an exception. In actually, this is a community effort by three contemporary artists, Johannes Grutzke, Jan Peter Tripp, and Arno Waldschmidt.  Karl & Faber Kunstauktionen GmbH, Munich, DE has listed the drawing in their current auction catalog. It is so refreshing to see contemporary drawing skills on par with the best of the 19th century academy.
