Fine watercolor and ink drawing of a dramatic landscape in Carinthia, which is the southernmost part of Austria, the drawing measuring 9 1/2" by 14". The old paper is laid down on 20th century paper, which is in turn glued down to cardboard, and a modern day frame is available at no extra cost. I do not see a signature, but on the backing is written the word "Longinotti" (could be meaningless, as in a former owner) and there is also an old label with name "Ludovici Martens" and title "Bridge in Carinthia". Disappointingly, and surprisingly, I see absolutely no information on any artists by any of these names. The drawing is so detailed that indeed it appears to be an engraving or etching, but I guarantee this to be an original drawing. Topographical art is a popular category today, there being entire auctions dedicated to it at Christie's South Kensington in London.
