Gottlieb Teufel was one of the most promising (and awarded) young etchers in Germany when WW-I drew him  to Flanders Fields.  The horrors seen in the killing fields of Europe and because of his (mental) injuries he died young just 38 years old. He must have been a great admirer of Rembrandt (see his entry) while his etchings obviously were printed in very low edition numbers (5, 10) . 

Two of his etching were found, still together after a century, and recently acquired for the Nymphaeum collection with the help of the friendly seller.
