Lith. by Deroy - Printed by Cattier. 19 American Side Entered . 1848 .New York. Goupil & Cie ." American Side, 19 The American Side engraving shows the American Falls from the Canadian side, with small figures in the foreground. Lovely image of the famous falls. Kollner was a prolific and long-lived Philadelphia artist (he lived until 1908), working with most of the major firms in the city before striking out on his own. He produced a large series of views of American cities between 1848 and 1851, and these views of Niagara are among his works from that period. "At mid-century August Köllner produced an ambitious portfolio of fifty four lithographs, entitled VIEWS OF AMERICAN CITIES, which included eight images of the Niagara River. Though small in size, these lovely prints were of finer quality than the mass-produced popular lithographs. Whether sold as a set in the portfolio or as separate prints, they would have appealed to those who wanted top quality works of art" - Lane. LANE, IMPRESSIONS OF NIAGARA 211.
