Empire Biedermeier Academic Study From A Plaster Cast: Ca. 1815-1830

A seller on eBay Germany has posted another beautiful example of a 19th century drawing from the plaster cast, this time from the 1815-1830 Biedermeier time period. The attention to detail and mastery of the gray scale just knocks me over on this one. The seller included a photograph of the original as the source for the drawing (last illustration).
