Period Paper is pleased to offer a collection dramatizing German cityscapes featuring artwork by Hans Herrmann, Alfred Scherres, Karl O'Lynch von Town, Gertrude Wurmb, Charles Vetter, and Otto F. Probst. The collection contains scenes of picturesque promenades, medieval architecture, narrow cobblestone streets, and iconic cathedrals-- all wonderfully reproduced and retaining the Romanticism of the original paintings. Printed on thick stock, each duo-tone print emphasizes the emotionality of place and the sublimity of picturesque medieval streets, employing the tangible relics of medieval times to free the imagination, and escaping the realities of an increasingly industrial era.

This piece was illustrated by Scherres, Alfred. Artist signature in print - bottom right of image.
