HENRI GIES or GUIS ( 1881 - 1950 ): Academic Nude Studies of Male Youths

I managed to add three additional drawings of academic nude studies from the Paris Academie Julian just before Christmas. They were listed at such ridiculously low prices that I could not resist adding them to my collection. Unfortunately, biographical information on the artist is sparse. That first drawing in red crayon is dated "December 1899...cours Lefebre - 3 heurs." Enjoy.
