Wilhelm Hempfing (1886–1948) was a German painter and printmaker.  He is best known for his Impressionist style landscapes, portraits and numerous painted nudes.  He was also a noted etcher.  He studied at the Kunstakademie Karlsruhe and traveled frequently, painting in England, Denmark, France, the Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Macedonia, Greece and the German coast along the North and Baltic Seas.  His use of bathing as a metaphor for virginity loss is consistent with the discussion in ‘Deflowered: Loss of Virginity in Art’.
