Male Nude Life Drawing Antique French circa 1880

A striking antique French life drawing a man circa 1880 signed upper left. The use of a real person in a French academy was a method used to instill in artists the tenets of the Classical tradition. Seen from behind, the artist has concentrated upon the muscles in the back and legs of this male nude to convey the lifelike impression. Teaching the use of light and dark, balance and symmetry, an art academy was considered an essential part of learning. Please enlarge the photographs to see the details in closeup. Now in a custom frame.
