Männlicher Akt, Tuschezeichnung, 19 Jhdt.. Unknown Austrian Artist, Late 19th Century ... Standing Male Nude.. Pen and Ink Drawing


Have you ever had one of those days when standing upright seems to be a great accomplishment in and of itself? And then comes a small ray of sunshine into your life? I was stumbling around the halls of eBay Austria this morning (seems like my body does all the stumbling lately while my mind remains firmly glued to reality) when I strayed upon a small ray of sunshine in the form of a pen and ink drawing attributed to some unknown Austrian artist who had been obviously trained in the wonderful tradition of the 19th Century Academy. The asking price was very reasonable and I grabbed it for my collection. I do not know who you were sir but you have all my admiration!
