At the end of the fourth year at the Wackers Academy, we have to pass a kind of test before passing on to the graduation year. This test, called "tentamen" consists of a long list of drawings and paintings to make at home. Portraits, figure drawing, painting on location, mastercopies, still life and a short thesis. On May 24th, everything will be judged by a panel of four teachers.

This is the first of three portrait studies.
