Ernst Geissendorfer – Signed Etching of Rothenberg ob der Tauber Town Hall


Signed etching on paper by German artist Ernst Geissendorfer, which shows the Town Hall (Rathaus) of Rothenburg ob der Tauber,  a town in the district of Ansbach of Mittelfranken (Middle Franconia), the Franconia region of Bavaria, Germany.

A twentieth century German painter and etcher, Ernst Geissendorfer studed art techniques in Nuremberg. In the decade of the 1930s he traveled and worked extensively, both in Europe and the United States. At the end of the Second World War (1945), Geissendorfer returned to live in Rothenburg and assumed control of the family art gallery there. Besides creating many fine works of art, Ernst Geissendorfer served as Town Councillor of Rothenburg during the 1960s.

The name “Rothenburg ob der Tauber” is German for “Red castle above the Tauber”. This is so because the town is located on a plateau overlooking the Tauber River.

The Rathaus (town hall) is a notable renaissance building. The rear Gothic part of the building dates from 1250, and the attached front Renaissance building was started in 1572. This building served as the seat of government for the city-state during the medieval ages and for the city of Rothenburg since the formation of the federalist government.
