This etching represents a fine, original example of the 20th century landscape art created by Ernst Geissendorfer. Rothenburg ob der Tauber depicts one of Germany's most picturesque places.

Ernst Geissendorfer: A twentieth century German painter and etcher, Ernst Geissendorfer studied art techniques in Nuremberg. In the decade of the 1930's he travelled and worked extensively, both in Europe and the United States. At the end of the Second World War (1945), Geissendorfer returned to live in Rothenburg and assumed control of the family art gallery there. Besides creating many fine works of art, Ernst Geissendorfer served as Town Councillor of Rothenburg during the 1960's. Before World War Two, Ernst Geissendorfer usually produced small, uncoloured etchings. After 1950, however, he created much larger etchings to which he applied hand-colouring. "Rothenburg ob der Tauber" (Rothenburg over the Tauber) dates from this latter period. This original hand-colored etching depicts one of Germany's most picturesque places. Situated in Bavaria on the Tauber River, Rothenburg is virtually unchanged since the Middle Ages. Medieval towers and walls of defence still stand within the city.
