290303 View of the railway Fürth-Nürnberg. 4 horizontal stripes: at the top, the train goes from the left to the right, at the bottom the other way round. On the 2 middle stripes, in parallel - in the true sense of the word - to the new means of trnasport, the author shows the view from the train: houses, trees, country & city people, riders, coach & horse & cart. Printed in gold on multicolored paper. Back: Plain. Maker: Johann Lechner, Fürth (?) 351x432 mm. c1836.
Lit.: Heijbroek/Greven [1994] 155.
The background is stencilled with a pattern of lozenges in green, yellow, vermilion & carmine. The train started for the first time from Nürnberg to Fürth on Dec. 7, 1835. It is quite exactly represented with its tender, an open, a covered & a closed carriage. The medium brocade paper & its technique were by that time already things of the past. We see now in front of us one of its last evidences in conjunction with the first occurrence of a means of transport that will revolutionize the ways of life: actually a symbol of the end of the old world at the beginning of the industrial era. Very good conservation.
