[Head Study.]
Original-Radierung Von O. Fischer.
Druck & Verlag Der Gesellschaft E. Verveilf. Kunts in Wien. [n.d. c.1901.]
Etching on wove paper. Plate 310 x 235mm. 12¼ x 9¼".
Head study of a Jew. Otto Fischer (Leipzig, 1807-Dresden 1947) was one of Germany's most famous etchers and painters at the beginning of the twentieth century, Otto Fischer studied at the Dresden Academy, under Preller and Hermann Prell. From 1894 to 1914 Otto Fischer participated in many exhibitions throughout Europe and America. He then assumed the post of Professor of Art at the Dresden Academy. Today the art of Otto Fischer is included in major museums in Berlin, Dresden, Leipzig, Breslau, Budapest and at the Albertina, Vienna. In his etched art, Otto Fischer gained a strong reputation as a superbly talented delineator of landscapes, still-lifes, figure studies and portraits. Head Study is surely a tour de force of Otto Fischer's art. With its finely crafted lines and shadings the artist has rendered the soul of his study. Vervielfaltigende Kunst issued it first original etching in 1871. During the following sixty years it published masterworks by Austrian, German, Czech, Swiss, French, Dutch and English artists. More internationally focused and less conservative than most of its rival publishers, Vervielfaltigende Kunst became a spearhead for the vibrant experiments of Symbolist, Expressionist and Secessionist artists during the initial decades of the twentieth century. Also, its superb printing techniques were second to none. As a result, Vervielfaltigende Kunst is now regarded as a most vital fine art publisher of its day and individual prints from this publication are eagerly sought after on the international market.

[Cambridge. Trinity College, King Edward's Gate.] 54.
[Cambridge. Trinity College, King Edward's Gate.] 54. [Trinity College was founded in 1546 by Henry VIII., whose statue is above the gateway. It was formed by the amalgamation of a number of older foundations dating from 1324-1336. The Library of Trinity College was built by Wren, who took as his example the Sansovino Library of St. Mark, Venice. The north side of the court is occupied partly be the Chapel with a gateway-tower in the middle (at west end of the Chapel) known bu the name of King Edward's Gate. It was built about 1426-30, and is of quite a different character from that of the later and heavier gate (or Queen's Gate). Thiw was the first gateway-tower with four turrets to be erected in Cambridge; a form of tower which became characteristic of Cambridge colleges. Thomas Neville built westwards of the Gate a new range containing the Library, thus completing the north side of the quadrangle. Among the famous men of the college are John Donne, Abraham Cowley, Andrew Marvell, John Dryden, Sir Issac Newton, George Crabbe, Lord Morley, Lord Byron and Lord Tennyson.]

A village scene, possibly Kitzbühel, with an orthodox church in the moutains. Kitzbühel, a small medieval town in Tyrol, Austria. Hans Figura (Vienna, Austria 1898-1978) was well known for his European and American landscape and cityscape aquatint etchings. He exhibited his prints and original oil paintings in various international venues during his lifetime. Walter Meibohm worked with Mr Figura personally post WWII and maintained a friendship with him until his death in 1978. A contemporary of two other famous Austrian artists – Luigi Kasimir and T.F. Simon – Hans Figura was amongst the great pioneers in colour etching and aquatint. By the late 1920s, with studios in both Vienna and New York, Figura was well established as a regular exhibitor in these cities as well as in Paris, London and Berlin. Figura produced landscapes in almost every European city, combining the intricacies of colour etching and aquatint with amazing results. Highly successful during the golden era of this demanding medium, Figura's work is still sought after by fine art collectors today.

E.J. Detmold [signed in pencil.]
[n.d. c.1900.]
Drypoint with pencil signature with large margins. Plate 265 x 425mm (10½ x 16¾").
Two Arab men on horseback rear up in front of a fantastical city landscape with monkeys and peacocks, by Edward Julius Detmold (1883-1957), twin brother to Charles Maurice Detmold (1883-1908). The pair were among the artists associated with the Golden Age of Illustration. They worked together making sketches at the Zoological Gardens and exhibited together from the age of fourteen. He became one of the best Edwardian animal illustrators, known for his subtle placement of animals within their natural environment. Edward expressed artistic versatility and published a number of books of fine fantasy drawings in the 1920s; they portrayed a vivid imagination and he utilised warm colouring, which suited the period. The Jungle Book (1908) was to be the last substantial commission that the brothers worked on - due to the death of Charles in that same year. The extraordinary success of their illustrations to accompany Kipling's classic tale, however, firmly established the reputation for Edward and the following year, a suite of illustrations prepared to Aesop's tales were published in The Fables of Aesop (1909).

Colonel Francis Augustus Fane (1824-1893) was a Colonel who fought in the Indian Mutiny. He was commander of the Peshawar Light Horse. He gained the rank of Colonel in the service of the 25th Regiment. His life was full of excitement starting first as a soldier, then a banker before settling down as a country gentleman. He started life as a soldier in Antigua where he did some extensive sightseeing before returning to England for his second assignment which took him to Quebec, leading to further sightseeing with his uncle Major -General Mildmay Fane, around Niagara, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington and Boston. In 1854 he returned to England to immediately join his uncle in India. It was until 1860 when he next moved to join the 25th regiment in Gibraltar. Following the death of his father in 1862 and the later death of his brother-in-law Anthony Willson, the Sleaford banker in 1866, he returned in November to end his army career, and embarked on a career in banking and finance.

During his time as a soldier he managed to find a lot of free time to indulge in numerous pastimes. This enabled him to become adept at music, and at drawing, painting and engraving. Whilst in the West Indies he had a large organ, which he took with him and exchanged in Calcutta in 1857 for a large harmonium, which was lost during the Mutiny. This ability enabled him to play in church in Quebec and in 1860 he received a new piano from Berlin in Gibraltar. It wasn’t until 1851 that he began etching, at which point he was in London based at a printers to learn that art of printing and engraving. He then bought his own printing press, which he took to India.

After leaving finance he soon became involved in local affairs in Fulbeck and in farming. He became a Justice of the Peace in 1875; and was very active in the affairs of the Conservative Association and of the Agricultural Society. His diaries came to abrupt end in 1884, nine years before his death, so little can be said about his remaining years.
