Johann Adolf Lasinsky, Assmannshausen

Assmannshausen – Rhinegau – Lasinsky, Johann Adolf (Simmern 1808 – Dusseldorf 1871). Vue de Asmannshausen. View of Assmannshausen. General view from the opposite bank over the Rhine. On the street on this side people below parts of Rheinstein Castle (Vautsberg), on the Rhine boats. 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. 9 × 11½ in (22.8 × 29.1 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).
