4 academic studies of male nudes, in graphite, from life. These nude drawings - known as "académies" - were part of academic art education as practiced in the 19th century. They are based on professional models posing in the studio, on a platform. This type of exercise enabled students to study anatomy. For a future artist, drawing from a live model was the basis of artistic training, along with drawing from bumps and antique statues.
