Charcoal drawing of two nude women bathing, 6 1/4" by 8 7/8" inside the mat, 13 1/2" by 15 1/2" framed, signed a lower right center "Mayrshofer Max". This is a work by the German artist MAX MAYRSHOFER (1875-1950), likely created around the time of World War I. Mayrshofer, the son of a baker, was born in Munich and it is with that Bavarian city that he is closely associated. He was educated in art there under the tutelage of Seitz and Marr, and by 1910 was working as an illustrator for local publications. Subject matter most often focuses on recording the daily lives of Munich residents, in oil, pastel and charcoal. Often he drew nude women or groups of nude women, and the drawings often have an erotic component. Nicely framed in gold with a green mat, this does not appear to have been opened in decades. There is some rusty discoloration in the paper at top and bottom edges.
