19th Century Academic Study: Standing Male Nude

A few minutes ago I picked up this nice Male Nude Study on eBay France. Unfortunately, I can find no biographical information on the artist (M. Brurd?) (signed in the lower left corner). Still, a nice 19th century nude study.

Pelagio Palagi (1775-1860) Seated Male Nude - Pen and Ink Drawing ... ca. 1810-20

Our friend at La Portantina di Mattia Jona, Milan, Italy has just posted his new aquisitions. This nice pen and ink Male Nude caught my eye. Pelagio Palagi (1775-1860) was an Italian architect, portrait painter, furniture designer and collector. He started his training early and by the age of 20 he was collaborating with Antonio Basoli in Bologna. He attended the evening drawing sessions at the home of the Italian engraver Frencesco Rosaspina. In 1802 he studied at the Bolognese Accademia. In 1806, he moved to Rome, continuing his studies at the Accademia de San Luca under Camuccini. In 1815, he moved to Milan, where he remained until 1832. During his residence in Milan he established a private school of painting and architecture. He was elected to the Brera Academy. In 1832 he was employed by then King Carlo Alberto to direct the decoration of the royal residences. (Thanks to Matta Jona for the illustration and biography of the artist)

Ludwig von Hofmann (1861-1945): Badende Knaben (Repost)

This afternoon I was browsing through some of my past posts on this blog and I noticed that I did a not so fine job of stitching together the pieces of one of my favorite Ludwig von Hofmann works, Badende Knaben (Bathing Boys), so I decided to give it another try. I have managed to perfect a technique of blowing the originals up to large pixilated sizes so that my eyes can see where the original parts should be joined together rather than rely upon just guessing. The results are far better than past postings. There is a lot of movement in this pastel drawing even though the figures themselves are static in their surroundings.

Ernst Bischoff-Culm (1870-1917): Male and Female Nudes - Intaglio Print

I guess this is a 19th century male view of a frat party. A seller on eBay Germany listed this work by Ernst Bischoff-Culm (1870-1917) recently. The price is a bit out of my reach right now but I still like the action going on. Let's see: there's something here for everybody, girls holding hands with girls, guys holding hands with guys, guys and girls laughing, guys and girls holding hands, everybody doing the latest dance drunk on their feet, yup, that looks like a 19th century frat party to me! Anywho, Ernst Bischoff-Culm studied under Georg Knorr and Carl Steffeck at the Kunstakademie Konigsberg, later at the Kunstakademie Berlin under Hugo Vogel and Josef Scheurenberg.

Rudolf Henn (1880-1955) Nackter Jungling mit Spiegel (Nude Ephebe with Mirror) ca. 1900

The Rudolf Henn bronze arrived from the German auction house this week. Unfortunately, there is some damage to the mirror frame which was not disclosed in the lot description. The moral of the story is, don't be a complete moron like me, ask for a complete condition report from the auction house before you blow big bucks on something. Fortunately, I have located a very competent art bronze master who, hopefully, if I can afford it, will reverse the damage and bring this beautiful work of art back up to its original condition. The base and figure itself is in pristine condition fortunately. Let's keep our fingers crossed. Enjoy.
