Albert Leusch (1877-1954) Standing Male Nude in Heroic Pose

 This drawing came into my collection several months ago. It is a graphite drawing on paper by German artist Albert Leusch (1877-1954)  and features a very familiar pose if you carefully look at it and can make a connection with a famous bronze sculpture... give up? It’s Philippides the Marathon runner by Max Kruse (1854-1942) Enjoy.
