An 8-3/4" x 6-5/8" numbered, limited closed edition engraving probably of Angers Cathedral by the German engraver Karl (Carl) Max Schultheiss (1885-1961). Starting out in Germany, he moved to the U.S. in the 1930s, where he had a 1938 exhibition of his etchings at the Art Institute of Chicago. This etching, in the original 16-1/4" x 16-1/4" black painted wood frame with original mat is signed on the right lower corner; it has a 98/350 number in pencil, and it has an embossed WOLGEMUTH & LISSNER BERLIN printer's mark. It would have had the original T. Eaton Co. inventory sticker and a label stating: "ORIGINAL ETCHING bearing the artists signature. This proof has been printed by hand from the original copper plate, etched by the artist and is published in a short limited edition, the plate ultimately being destroyed. Published by Wohlgemuth & Lissner, Berlin" as found on our other contemporary Schultheiss etching. This art etching is in excellent original condition with no tears, foxing, holes, fading, losses, damage or repairs, however the backing paper and stickers are absent on this example. We have another similar Schultheiss etching - please see our listings.
