Johann Adolf Lasinsky, Vautsberg Castle (Rheinstein)

Rheinstein – Trechtingshausen – Lasinsky, Johann Adolf (Simmern 1808 – Dusseldorf 1871). Chateau de Vautsberg. Vautsberg Castle. On the street below Rheinstein Castle people, on the Rhine sailboats. 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 (22.7 × 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). – Instructive representation of the castle reconstructed then by Prince Frederick of Prussia.
