Description

A superb engraving by Hans Otto Schönleber, an expressionist artist of the Stuttgart School. The full title of the engraving, written in pencil bottom right, is Burghausen II. There is Schönleber's signature in pencil bottom left. The artist's monogram and date, HS 22, are in the plate top right. At the bottom right edge of the print (under the mount), is a further pencil inscription which srats "Orig Küpferstich" but we cannot decipher the rest.

Burghausen is the largest town in the Altötting district of Upper Bavaria in Germany. It is situated on the Salzach river, near the border with Austria. Burghausen Castle rests along a ridgeline, and is the longest castle in the world.

A remarkable German engraver and woodcut artist, Hans Otto Schönleber was the son of the landscape painter, Gustav Schonleber. Despite his artistic heritage, Hans Schonleber first chose medicine as his career and served as a doctor on the Western Front during the First World War (1914-1918). The horrors he experienced during this most brutal of wars had a lasting affect upon him and shortly thereafter he abandoned medicine in favour of painting and printmaking.

From 1920 Schönleber's engravings and woodcuts were regularly exhibited in major German and Austrian exhibitions. He created some fine figure studies and portraits but became most famous for his strong landscape depictions. His engravings and woodcuts are post-Expressionist, but are also sometimes noted (as in this engraving) for harking back to early German topographical landscape drawing. Many scholars claim Schönleber's engraved art as a major influence on the landscape prints of M. C. Escher.

This print is number 41 in Edith Ammann's catalogue Das Graphische Werk von Hans Otto Schönleber, Karlsruhe 1961.
