Lot Essay

Schnorr was one of the protagonists of the German Nazarene movement. In 1811 he entered the Vienna Academy and it was during his time there that he executed this large scale nude study. The drawing is part of a group of three nude studies, one of which bears the date 1816 (see Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld. Zeichnungen, exhib. cat., Mainz, Landesmuseum, and Munich, Palaus Preysing, 1994-1995, p. 25, fig. 2).
