Unknown French School: Standing Male Nude - Circa 1865

A seller on eBay France has posted this nice academic study of a Male Nude which dates from the mid-19th century. Unfortunately it is not signed and the artist (accomplished, obviously) is unknown. I would wager he was a student at the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Paris. I have a similar painting with that same curving background in my collection.
