|Message:||Born in East Prussia (now in the Russian Federation), Lovis Corinth spent almost the entirety of his training and career in Munich and Berlin. However, from 1884-1887 the artist - who aspired to be a history painter - went to Paris to train at the Académie Julian under the two celebrated painters, Tony Robert- Fleury and Adolphe William Bouguereau.
Their teaching focused on life drawing - an approach that was particularly suited to the large figural compositions of history paintings. Nude Girl is one of approximately twenty paintings - mostly nudes - that survive from Corinth's Parisian sojourn.
