ACADEMY (Académies): Alvin J. Metelman – “Academic Male University Study” – United States – 1928


Male academic study by Alvin J. Metelman (American, 1896 – 1948). We find a university class in New England in the late 1920s. Not much is known about the painting. The model was local “handy-man” construction worker. 

The piece shows the college students studying like the masters of Old Europe.
