Auguste Wugs (?): Standing Nude Boy - Circa 1900

This nice drawing of a nude boy by Auguste Wugs (?) sold yesterday on one of the European eBay sites. Needless to say the bidding hit the roof. Unfortunately, I could find no biographic information on the artist but the description indicated it had been in the possession of Studio Lavielle at one time. It is executed on thin paper and shows the precision of a 19th century Academy trained hand and eye.
