Otto Bacher’s “Auf-Staufa-Bruck (On Staufa Bridge)” Etching
Schwabelweiss, 1879. Andrew, Danube set #14. Signed with his monogram, titled, and dated in the plate. Bacher left Cleveland for studies in Munich in 1878, and this etching represents his happy experience in Germany as a youth tramping along the Danube River from one small town to another.
The trip resulted in 27 etchings in his Danube Set. After his studies in Munich, Bacher went with Frank Duveneck’s “boys” to Venice in 1880 where he fell under the spell of Whistler. This etching is printed on satin, a delicate process much-loved in the 1880s for the glistening effect. This is in beautiful condition.
Plate signed etching dated Sept 1879 and Plate-mark measures 8 by 2.75 inches. Limited edition ( general considered by most professional American prints Dealers to be 500 approximate). NOT numbered, that practice was not used till 1940’s so do not ask.
Etching in good condition and published by The American Art Review in 1880.
