Copperplate etching printed with oil based ink on BFK rag paper.  6" x 9".   Edition of 3. Signed, numbered and dated.

Situated in the heart of the magnificent Wachau Valley, Dürnstein sits on a river bend, below a rocky promontory, on the banks of the mighty Danube River.   This village offers visitors breathtaking scenery, acres of terraced vineyards, traditional architecture and places of historic interest, but its star attraction is the Wedgewood-like Baroque church tower.  

Today, Dürnstein is famous for its vineyards. With its mild climate, grapes and apricots flourish here.  Dürnstein’s Stiftskirche is one of the finest baroque towers in all of Austria.  Within the interior, Faith, Hope and Charity watch over the carved pulpit. Durnstein Castle ruins, in which Richard the Lionheart was held prisoner, sits on the hilltop overlooking Dürnstein.
