Painting - Oil On Canvas
This is reproduction of “Elegies” by Wilhelm von Gloeden of 1902. Wilhelm von Gloeden was born in 1856 in Wismar, Germany and studied painting in 1876 until he was forced to leave due to tuberculosis.

He became famous for his nude photographs of young men and was scrupulous in sharing his profits with his models. He exhibited in London, Cairo, Berlin, Philadelphia, Budapest, Marseilles, Nice, Riga and Rome. He died in 1931 in Taormina. This image portrays a naked young man overlooking a bay of the Mediterranean. The original photograph measures 37 by 27 centimeters.
