The creator of this intaglio print was Lesser Ury (1861-1931) who was born in Birnbaum. In his youth, he moved with his family to Berlin. Trained at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf, he made his reputation after returning to Berlin and exhibiting with the Berlin Secession. While noted for his urban landscapes, both in painting and print, he also produced work with rural themes. This etching is signed (Lesser Ury) in pencil on the lower left margin and titled (undeciphered ) in pencil on the lower right margin. The print, mounted on thin paper, is in fine condition with a faint time stain around the image and paper losses at the edges and corners – well away from the image. We will send this piece flat and in an acid-free mat.
