Jane Kallir has examined this artwork in the original, and confirms that, in her opinion, the drawings on both sides of the sheet are by the hand of Egon Schiele. The two drawings will appear in forthcoming digital supplement to her catalogue raisonné, "Egon Schiele: The Complete Works Online", The lying nude under the number D. 1584a, and Two lying nudes under the number D. 1568b. A photo certificate by Jane Kallir is enclosed.
