Johann Adolf Lasinsky, Rudesheim

Rudesheim – Niederwald – Lasinsky, Johann Adolf (Simmern 1808 – Dusseldorf 1871). Vue de Rüdesheim. View of Rudesheim. General view from the upstream bank. In the background the Niederwald with the temple, on the left on the other side Bingen in outlines, in the Rhineloop the Mouse Tower. On the stream sailboats, on the bank figures, among them the sketching artist watched by children. Toned pen and ink lithograph. Inscribed: (Recorded from nature and lithographed by J. A. Lasinsky 1828. / Frankfort a/M. C. Jügel.), caption as above in German-French parallel text. 8⅞ × 11½ in (22.6 × 29.3 cm).

In its nervous line conduct ahead of its time ,

unmistakably, and instantaneously lithographed after own sketch, and thus “standing out highly advantageously from the leaves of much smaller size engraved after him by other artists … Lasinsky’s ‘sensibility, keenest power of observation, realistic study of nature, and talent for large wide landscapes’ have been praised” (Schulte 1969). – Fine view.
