Unknown European School: Nude Boy Reclining (Ca. 1900)

An auction house in Germany has listed this nice study of a nude boy in their current catalog. Unfortunately the artist is unknown because the signature is illegible. You have to laugh at an artist who has such control over his color palette yet can't sign a painting in a way to preserve his identity for posterity. A close inspection of the surface indicates it is in dire need of some preservation expertise. Still a nice painting. It dates from around 1900.
