(Germany- View of Nonnenwerth, Rolandseck and Drachenfels- Dragon's Rock- Castle Ruins)
Printed c. 1840, Europe
Engraved by R. Bodmer
Remarkably beautiful original antique print with some of the most artistic old hand coloring on an old print we have ever seen. The quality of light captured in the sky and across the water is nothing less than masterful. The colorist was almost certainly an artist. The print looks and feels visually like a small original painting. A gem of an image.
A picture is worth a thousand words. The photos are a major part of the item description. Please examine them closely, as what you see is what we will send you. [note: we grade conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws.].
Print remains overall clean & sound, light signs of age typical to all old sheets of printed paper. The photographs or scan provided should capture the appearance better than words.
Old prints often display small minor repairs on the back, could have uneven blank margins, might have extraneous fold-lines or other small minor age flaws which do not detract from the visual appeal or value. Condition is carefully considered in arriving at our price.
Wonderful old print entirely worthy of hanging for display.
A visual depiction captured in a manner entirely unique to this era.
