DEMBINSKI, Eduard von
[Original Signed Ink Drawing Heightened with Watercolour of the Stephansdom in Vienna].


Ca. 1925. Ink and watercolour drawing on board, ca. 28,5x17 cm (11x7 in). Recently matted, very good drawing. This attractive skillfully executed ink drawing is of the Stephansdom as seen from the Churhausgasse. "St. Stephen's Cathedral (German: Stephansdom) is the mother church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vienna and the seat of the Archbishop of Vienna, Christoph Cardinal Schönborn, OP. The current Romanesque and Gothic form of the cathedral, seen today in the Stephansplatz, was largely initiated by Duke Rudolf IV (1339-1365) and stands on the ruins of two earlier churches, the first a parish church consecrated in 1147. The most important religious building in Austria's capital, St. Stephen's Cathedral has borne witness to many important events in that nation's history and has, with its multi-coloured tile roof, become one of the city's most recognizable symbols" (Wikipedia).
