Anonymous Austrian Academic Male Nude - Oils on Canvas - circa 1810

As I find examples of 18th and early 19th century Academic works online I thought I would post them for your enjoyment. This nice example is currently listed on a European auction site. There is a Biblical aspect to it with the symbology of the staff. Perhaps Young St. John the Baptist? The Good Shepherd?
