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.

“ Subject: Thanks!

Thanks for your kind reply. I wanted to comment that your thoughts on freedom (the quote that you had on the end of your message to me) are exactly the same as my beliefs.

I write, however, because I was surprised to get it from Europe … Although an American, almost all my early family were Huguenots … In fact, my relative, Jan C. is noted as the earliest C. to have arrived in N. America (in 1636, I think) … ”
