LEMMEN, Georges

Nude studies.

21.06.1887

Drawing, pen and Chinese ink, watercolour, 25 x 34,5 cm, paper, unsigned, dated at upper right "Jeudi 21 juin 87", number in red chalk at bottom right "no. 588".

Under passe-partout and gilt frame.

A very early work by the Belgian (post-) impressionist artist Georges Lemmen (1865-1916). The study of a nude woman reclining on a sofa. The sheet can be associated with two other drawings, dated 1888, depicting probably the same woman sitting either on the same sofa or a chair, respectively in the Collection E. Noulet (Ohain) and in a private collection. The study betrays a vague influence of Toulouse-Lautrec's seemingly trivial naturalism.
