Neumann specialized in this sort of genre picture, believing that humanity was, in his words, "the most noble and fitting subject of art." Neumann himself, dressed in his habitual vest, stands facing the muscular life model whose flexed bicep is the real centre of attention. Scattered about the studio are Neumann's fellow artists, including Louis Muhlstock (b. 1904), who stands over the easel at the far left.
