During Christmass time I can see Blog visits rising, and now having the extra attention this is a fine opportunity to ask readers and visitors to help identify some printmakers and solve some puzzles.
To start with: I've found this picture of a very nice woodblock print somewhere in the Internet, safed it but so far was unable to find it again. The signature could read F. Mentz Kaßsel. But I have never found a printmaker by that name. It seems to me a 25 year anniversary of some kind (a choir singing).
Same goes for these two Internet found "said to be Russian" (are they ?) wintery and snowy prints. They are (very) reminding of Paul Leschorn's (1876-1951) speciality (below). And I don't know if they are by the same printmaker.
