VIENNA: Singer, Am Hof

Am Hof, Vienna

Color etching, ca. 1920, 295 x 395 mm. A fine impression on chine-appliqué with large margins, titled and signed in pencil. Singer was one of a group of painter-etchers, including the better-known Luigi Kasimir, who documented the scenes and sights of Vienna in the early years of the last century. But Singer was interested more in conditions of light and atmosphere than in monuments per se, and his depiction here gives us the full feeling of a grey, snowy day in the inner city of Vienna, the outdoor market still functioning in the square surrounded by its Baroque architecture. As such, his work bears a certain resemblance to that of the Frenchman Félix Buhot. The muted colors appear to have been achieved by painting the surface of the plate before printing but after the inking of the lines.
