Heinrich Susemihl (1862-?): Academic Nudes

The seller in Germany has listed a third round of works by Heinrich Susemihl. Based upon the listed dimensions I would guess he has found a sketch book and is listing the drawings as individual works. Still, some very nice drawings.


The seller on eBay Germany has listed a second round of drawings by Heinrich Susemihl and I thought I would post those for you also:

A seller on eBay Germany has just listed a beautiful series of academic nude drawings from the late 19th century by the German painter-illustrator Heinrich Susemihl (1862-?). Susemihl studied at the Dresden Academy from 1886 to 1890 under Professor Leon Pohle (1841-1908) and is known primarily as a book illustrator. The seller attributes the missing parts of the drawings as possibly where another smaller drawing had been removed. Most of the poses of the models are refreshingly original.
