This wonderful lithographic print was probably created by Leipzig lithographer and from 1893 co-owner of a (one of the hundreds) Leipzig printing and publishing firm founded by Hermann Schlag. How and why this no doubt rare print surfaced in the Netherlands is a mystery. 

Nothing further came to light concerning the identity of this artist. In 1918 he lived in Magdeburg and was a member if the German association of lithographers (Deutscher Senefelder-Bund).
