Ubbelohde, Otto, German painter, etcher and illustrator (1867-1922). Autograph signature.

Großfelden, 8. IX. 1917.

Oblong 8vo (postcard). 1 page.


Inscribed to the German dermatologist Alwin Scharlau.

While focused on oil painting, preferring landscapes of the Marburg area as well as still lifes, Ubbelohde is best known for his 448 illustrations for a 1909 edition of Grimm's Fairy Tales, on which he worked for three years, as well as for his countless other book illustrations, postcards and bookplates.

Traces of a postmark; small tear in left margin. Self-addressed by the collector on the reverse. The Mecklenburg physician Scharlau (b. 1888) assembled a collection of artists' autographs by personal application.
