Ernst Hochscharter (1877-1947) Standing Nude Ephebe 1893

I picked this little drawing up tonight for a pittance from a seller in Vienna, Austria. Ernst Hochscharter (1877-1947) was born in Vienna and from what I can tell studied at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts. I do not have much biographical information on him but he is a well listed Austrian genre painter from the late 19th to mid 20th centuries. He specialized in portraits and worked as an illustrator.
