Ivanov, Alexander Andreyevich (1806 - 1858) Nude Female Youth - Nude Male Youth

Well, never say never. I was running through a Russian website and stumbled upon a couple of Alexander Ivanov's beautiful Academic studies of children. It seems that the majority of his major works have a nude Ephebe in it somewhere. This female nude is somewhat rare and you do not see them everyday of the week like you do works featuring boys and male youths. Enjoy.
