On verso fully developed drawing of a seated male nude, black ink with white heightening, study for the allegorical figure of Time for the etching Integer Vitae.

Note: The present drawing is a preparatory sketch for the opening plate in Klinger's cycle of etchings, On Death Part II (1898-1909). The etching is loaded with allegorical and symbolist imagery, one of them being the figure of Time, which appears on the verso of the present sheet. Klinger worked on the cycle on and off for fifteen years. The model for the present drawing appears also as the long-haired youth standing in the center of the etching And Yet, a transitional plate in the same cycle On Death Part II.
