Notes

This is the only drawing surviving from Muller-Ury’s study in Stans with Deschwanden which is of an academic nature. It’s difficult to reconcile the date of the sheet with the overly religious atmosphere in Deschwanden’s studio; the date of July 1880 suggests that the young artist might have been on holiday in Italy and taken advantage of the occasional availability of naked models.
