Matterhorn: Findeln, Zermatt

Unknown printmaker: help requested 

A typical wooden shed, a granary in Findeln, just above Zermatt, with a view on Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps by an unknown or unidentified printmaker. Wolfgang, usually solving my puzzles could use a hand with this print. No big deal, not great art, just a simple print ? Yes, but it is also "simply as it is". On a clear day and once you've decided and selected the subject of your work. Quite clever also, and true. So if you have any idea about the maker .....................or can read the signature. 

Dagmar Hooge (1870-1930) was also was in the Alps in 1922 to or from her visit to Martha Cunz (1876-1961) in St. Gallen with her sister and tried to catch the atmosphere of a clearing storm in the mountains. Where  and Martha Cunz choose a sunny day.

And a few years later Yoshida Hiroshi (1876-1950) choose Matterhorn (and the town of Zermatt) too, in 1925, and made two versions of the same print: one at day and one at night.
