Heinrich Vosberg

(1833-1891)Vosberg was born at Leer in 1833 and died at Gmunden on the 20th of January in the year 1891.  Vosberg studied at the Academy of Düsseldorf and at the School of Art in Carlsruhe.  He also worked in the shop of Schirmer.  The  work was completed by Vosberg in 1887.

but don't get too excited ,

This painting was most likely done at The Hudson Valley Art School in the late 19th century using the print from the Newspaper.

you see a  copy of "Alone" was printed as part of The Chicago Tribune Art Supplement, dated September 30th, 1894.  Featured as a "Famous Painting of Europe", the actual print size is 8.25 by 16 inches.  It was mounted on paper and produced by the Knapp Co., Lithograph - N.Y..  still a very nice piece of Americanna Hudson Valley Art

I can answer questions about Salvador Dali. While I cannot do FREE APPRAISALS, I might be able to help you sell your works. I can also help with Chagall, Miro, Picasso and other 20th Century Masters.

Questions about a type of art or medium can be answered with one response in most cases. Technical issues are easier to deal with than specifics about an artist. If you need help finding values or history on an artist, it will probably involve research that can sometimes take hours to complete. If you have more than one image to send, I will give you an alternate email address as this system cannot handle multiple images.
