Ludwig von Hoffman (1861-1945): Junge in Einer Felslandschaft (Boy in Rocky Landscape)

These seldom seen works by Ludwin von Hoffman (1861-1945) keep popping up occasionally in European Auction Houses, this time in the current catalog of Villa Grisebach Auktionen, Berlin, DE. I do not recall ever seeing this one in books on his works, still a nicely executed study of a male youth in landscape. If you have an extra six thousand Euros to get the bidding war going you might want to throw your name in the pot.

June 11, 2013: A seller on eBay Germany has listed another seldom seen von Hoffman drawing, this time a nice watercolor study for two thousand Euros. Enjoy.
