[New York], [published by Goupil, Vibert & Co.] 1850 - Hand-coloured lithograph,New York & Paris [probably printed in the latter]. 1849-1851. Title ["The Rapids at Niagara" 18] and other description line trimmed off thus the paper size is much smaller than was originally printed. Paper size: 8-3/4 x 12-1/8 inches Image size: 7-3/8 x 11 inches Condition: Some light soiling and wear, a couple of old fold lines on the top left side in border, clouds in sky a pinkish colour, otherwise image is very good. The "General View" shows the sweep of the falls as seen from afar, with small figures in the foreground enjoying the sites. A lovely image of the famous falls. Lane, Impressions of Niagara 216. 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 K├Âllner 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. [Attributes: First Edition]
