M. Shiffnler (?) - Unknown Artist - Unknown French School - Academic Drawings circa 1910-1930

Several very nice academic drawings by an unknown artist named M. Shiffnler (?) popped up on eBay France this week. I lost out on the bidding on the reclining male academic study (Directly below), so it will be headed for another collection. That particular drawing was unusually large (61cm by 108 cm) (approx. 24 in by 42.5 in). It was a beauty as you can see. Enjoy.
