« This  petty  nation  is  a  stumbling-block  —

One  way  or  other , it  must  be  put  down . »

Hermann Gessler, governor of Schwytz and Uri

Friedrich Schiller

William Tell, Act 4, Scene 3

 

Over  and  up  to  that

“ Tiny  Island

in  the  Immense  Sea  of  Euroland ”

the  Homeland  of  William  Tell

A voyage through Switzerland about 135 years ago, seen by the eyes of young artists longing for new views and details – among these Gustav Bauernfeind (Sulz on the Neckar 1848 – Jerusalem 1904; “… inspired by Gustav Schoenleber on a Swiss voyage he drew architectures of city halls, town gates, memorials and fountains which he, furnished with sketches of public life, digested into attractive pictures”, Thieme-Becker), Alexandre Calamé (Vevey 1810 – Mentone 1864; “The alpine Switzerland, however, remained the true home of his art”, Thieme-Becker), Arthur Calamé (1843 Geneva 1919), Ludwig Dill (Gernsbach, Baden, 1848 – Karlsruhe 1940), Themistokles von Eckenbrecher (Athens 1842 – Goslar/Berlin 1921), Albert Hertel (1843 Berlin 1912), Ernst Friedrich Heyn (1841 Leipsic 1894), Christian Kröner (Rinteln 1838 – Dusseldorf 1911), Friedrich Specht (Lauffen on the Neckar 1839 – Stuttgart 1909), Benjamin Vautier (Morges 1829 – Dusseldorf 1898), Heinrich von Zügel (Murrhardt 1850 – Munich 1941) – and so giving surprisingly fresh charm to long-familiar places. Just as one hundred years later Lee Iacocca of Chrysler sent 25 young recruits to Asia:

“ We  wanted  open  minds  not  poisoned  by  Detroit ”.

And engraved in wood instantaneously in 1875-77 by several engravers of the Xylographic Institute of Adolf Closs (“at his time one of the best of his profession in Germany”, Thieme-Becker), but also by the latter himself.

See Osteneck, Zur xylograph. Darstellung im 19. Jhdt., in Lüneburger Beiträge zur Vedutenforschung, 1983, pp. 120 ff., too; Hanebutt-Benz, Studien zum dt. Holzstich im 19. Jhdt., Frankfort 1984.

Throughout inscribed in the stocks in German – among these also charming hunting and game, wine, pub and textile sujets – the sheets are the necessary addition to your collection and come in

  1. as toned plate wood engravings in upright and oblong formats of c. 9⅞-10¼ × 7⅛-7½ in (25-26 × 18-19 cm) as well as
  2. wood engravings printed without tone plate of quoted size with continuous local, also directly picture-related text below and on the back. Occasionally with further wood engraving on the back in which case frame-ready double-sided passepartout is supplied.

« To  mild  a  ruler  am  I  to  this  people .

Their  tongues  are  all  too  bold — nor  have  they  yet

Been  tamed  to  due  submission , as  they  shall  be .

I  must  take  order  for  the  remedy ;

I  will  subdue  this  stubborn  mood  of  theirs ,

This  braggart  spirit  of  freedom  I  will  crush ,

I  will  proclaim  a  new  law  through  the  land »

« Yes , if  we  travel  downwards  from  our  heights ,

And  keep  descending  where  the  rivers  go ,

We  reach  a  wide  and  level  country , where

Our  mountain  torrents  brawl  and  foam  no  more ,

And  fair  large  rivers  glide  serenely  on .

All  quarters  of  the  heaven  may  there  be  scann’d

Without  impediment .  The  corn  grows  there

In  broad  and  lovely  fields , and  all  the  land

Is  like  a  garden  fair  to  look  upon . »
