Nude drawing is one of the most important pillars of a painter’s education. For me, it has always been one of my weak points. These works are from the time I was at the academy and the time I started to enjoy life drawing.
One of the main reasons why I made no progress with nude painting for so long was that I clung too much to a great Austrian draftsman, one of the artists I still admire today, Fritz Martinz. But I’m not the only one who couldn’t escape his dominance in nude painting.
Later I changed my style completely.
