Unknown Canadian Artist - Ca. 1890-1920 Standing Nude Boy

This Art Nouveau academic nude of a standing nude boy originated from Toronto, Canada. The artiques dealer had scant information on its origin but insisted it came from a local estate. I was in Toronto to attend a seminar on 19th Century classical painting techniques at a local private Atelier and bought it. I am basing my time estimate on the details of the frame, which to my eye says Art Nouveau. I apologize for the misaligned photographs. The varnish on the surface was shiny and I had to get off to the side to get a decent photograph.

Caption: Standing Nude Boy
