  DANUBE ON SATIN

  Otto Henry Bacher   (1856-1909)

 
  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. The survival of works on satin (silk) is not common. This is in beautiful condition.
