Winkel – Lasinsky, Johann Adolf (Simmern 1808 – Dusseldorf 1871). Vue du Johannisberg. View of Mount Johannisberg. View over the Rhine on Winkel at the foot of Mount Johannisberg with palace and Mumm’s House. Boat decoration. 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 × 11⅝ in (22.6 × 29.5 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). – In regard of the beautiful general view of Winkel especially rare.
