The Allegory to the Rhine River shows the personification of water as a muscular nude man seated, turning coyly away from us. It seems as if the viewer has distracted him from the task at hand. This is a lovely pose and anatomy study of a nude male figure and will add a wonderful classical look and elegance to your environment.
The original is by Prud'hon. I made this copy of his work in charcoal on paper. This is the SEPIA version of my drawing, on a creme paper. It would be a great exercise for you to print out and make a copy of this image, learn not only anatomy, but how to make the forms look round.
Pierre-Paul Prud'hon (April 4, 1758 – February 16, 1823) was a French painter who made many romantic drawings of male and female figures, best known for his allegorical works. He was an influence on and Théodore Géricault, and thus became a teacher of many contemporary artists today who want to learn how to draw well.

I recommend going to your local print shop and print this image out on a nice thick paper, preferably watercolor paper to mimic the texture of the original painting. You may also try online services such as snapfish.com [printing photographs and ships to you, however, in that case, I recommend choosing a matt finish, not glossy]
Paper prints should be either press-mounted to an acid-free support, such as foam core, or hung on the base support ONLY by the top. If the paper falls freely, it may adjust better to changing humidity conditions.
A mat give a classical look. I recommend that the mat be slightly less space at the top. Often if the mat is the same width top and bottom, the art tends to look low.
Then a simple black or dark brown frame (depending on color of drawing) will finish the look.
