Eduard Veith ( 1856 - 1925): Pencil Study of a Nude Boy - Circa 1880

I had a few minutes this morning and I thought I would scan that Veith pencil drawing I received last week and post it for you. It is just a quick pencil study, a few expressive lines on paper, and yet it is just something a little more. To my eye it illustrates that expressive hand-eye co-ordination of a classically trained 19th century artist.
