75. [French school]
Drawings, red chalk, 37,5 x 26 cm and 45 x 30 cm, laid paper with watermark ("P.T. BOT", unidentified), unsigned (sm. waterstain in drawing with standing nude).
Stuck under passe-partout by upper corners.
Two studies of young nude men. The first drawing depicts a standing nude viewed from the rear in contrapposto, leaning on an object with his right hand. A sitting nude can be seen in the second drawing. An antique helmet at his feet suggests a young hero from Antiquity. On the verso side of this drawing the outlines of a third nude figure study are drawn more sketchily.
