The Risky Nude Impressionism by Harry Maas

The following works that portray the nude impressionism (with some more explicit pieces!) by Harry Maas (1906-1982) are from a set of 13 pieces that included etchings and watercolors. They were offered at an auction held several years ago in the Netherlands.

Maas was a painter of mainly female beauty. He rarely exhibited his work after 1950. Besides portraits, floral still lifes and townscapes, nude studies were his trademark.

Thanks Ray, very nice. He clearly preferred using the more voluptuous models. Do you also want to exhibit them in real life? You can unite both artists in a duo exhibition.
