Gayle Richins information about Paul Geissler

Prof. Paul Geissler was born in Erfurt Germany on June 25, 1881.  He studied at both the Erfurt Arts and Craft School and the Grand-Ducal School of Arts.  He started as a painter, but gave it up at some point to spend more time on etching.  He moved and traveled, but in 1943 was appointed prof.   Many universities offered him a post but he chose to stay independent.  On May 30, 1965 he died.
As for the value of his work, it varies.  If unsigned or "estate signed" it is generally not very valuable.  If signed, it would be worth more.  If hand colored, then that also increases the dollar value.  The scene also is important in determining value.  Dealer here in the US seem to vary widely in pricing his hand colored, signed work and I have tracked prices between $165. and $500. for these more desirable etchings.  His work might be more accurately priced in Germany since we seem to be guessing here.  Good luck with your etching.  Sincerely, Gayle Richins

Paul Geissler etching of "The Rialto" in Venice (07/12/2010)

Dear Sir, I have had an etching by Paul Geissler for many years, inherited from my late father, but never paid any attention to the signature, and indeed, for the last 20 years it has been stored away. It is a beautifully rendered etching of "The Rialto" in Venice, Italy (my title for it as I remember my Father saying). I believe he must have acquired it on a visit to Venice in the 1930's. It is about 11 X 7.5 inches. It is signed both in the plate and by pencil, now more faint with age, in the lower right hand corner. Although I have no immediate plans to sell it, could you let me know what you believe it to be worth at this point, 2010?
Thank you. Victor Hoffman

Etching by Paul Geissler (09/28/2007)

I didn't know anything about Paul Geissler until I found this site. I too have an 'original leadrawing' of his. My picture is of Notre Dame Paris. There are lots of people on the sidewalk and a horse and buggy going down the street. There is no date on it, but has two signatures, one on the actual picture that says Paul Geissler and the other is below the picture that says Prof Paul Geissler. There is only one piece of the frame left that is attached to the glass also size 12 1/2 x 16. The picture is still in tact in the mat, behind the glass, with the cardboard backing.

Etching of Paul Geissler (03/18/2007)

Hi, I have just acquired an etching my Paul Geissler. It looks like someone has had it for a few years. I am pretty sure it is a cathedral. Paul Geissler signature is on the lower right which is underlined, and underneath is Milano, which is in the etching. In the lower left, outside of etching is the word Mailand. The lower right outside the etching reads, Original, Radierung von Prof Paul Geissler. Can you please tell me if it is an original or just a copy and how much it is valued at. Thankyou. Kind regards, Nancy.

Hi, I was hoping you could help me. A few years back I received an original signed black and white etching by Paul Geissler from my grandparents. The piece is labeled "Roderbogen- Rothenburg II".

Hugo Paul Geißler? (06/03/2005)

I'm sorry, I don't know much about Paul Geissler; only that I have a painting, which I have recently inherited from my parents after their deaths, that has been in my life for as long as I can remember. It has always been my favorite of all their paintings.
It was acquired in Germany probably around 1951, (my birth year - I was born in Frankfurt, G.) or there about. I can remember the painting in our home when I was 5 years old and still living in Germany. It is painted on a wooden plank measuring 15 5/8" x 11 5/8". It is not dated but is signed (printed), in red, in the lower left corner, by "Hugo Paul Geissler". (The ss is printed in the German style for the double "s".) The writing on the back says:
Am Plonlein im Rothenburg o.T. von Hugo Paul Geissler. There is an umlaut over the "o" in Plonlein. There is a of a portion of what is in the painting at . Not included in the photo (to the right) is a lower street, another tower with an arch through it and more buildings, four and two partial fronts before the tower. The tower has a "double" roof with a window in the front of the roof and four windows below that, one below the other, down the tower, with the arch below and the street continuing through the arch. Also, before the arch, there is a lantern hanging suspended from a "wire" from the right-most wall of the right-most building in the photo, on the upper street, over the street to one of the buildings on the lower street.
I did find, on, after entering the name Paul Geissler in the search space, an etching of the exact painting, it appears to be a winter scene; mine appears to be more a spring or summer scene. I've been trying to learn something about "Hugo" Paul Geissler and this beautiful piece of art. Any information you could share on this would be very much appreciated.
Thank you so much. Respectfully, Mark Turto

Two beautiful etchings of Geissler (07/09/2004)

While serving in the US Airforce in France in the early 1960's, I traveled to Germany and purchased two beautiful etchings. At the time I knew nothing about the artist, Paul Geissler. I am trying to find if the etchings are titled, and what their value might be. Both are signed, colored etchings on silk. One is of an elderly woman w/two canes, a basket of vegetables at her feet, and her apron held up in a "basket," also holding vegetables. Her tight hand is extending a plate on which there are other vegetables. It is signed "Paul Geissler," in the lower left hand corner. The second is of an elderly man, smoking a long pipe, standing next to a large basket containing vegetables. It is signed "Paul Geissler 1958" in the lower right hand corner. Both are matted (white) in simple frames. My e-mail address is

Bern and Rome (07/01/2004)

I have recently acquired a hand tinted engraving. Signed by the artist on the plate and signed and titled by the artist in pencil on the margin. Elegantly matted and framed. Overall size 12 1/2" wide by 16' high. Excellent condition. The dustpaper on the back of the frame bears the seal of Haley & Steele, Art Dealers, 91 Newbury St., Boston, Mass.
I also have one of the Watch tower in Bern. Does anyone know the name of it? I also have one in Rome with the ruins in the background. Would like some information on them.


Five originally signed etchings (07/01/2004)

Dear Sir: I have five originally signed etchings (uncolored) by artist Paul Geissler in excellent condition--matted and framed. They were done in the mid-20's of scenes predominantly in Philadelphia, PA USA. They are of Independence Hall, Betsy Ross' house, Carpenter's Hall, Girard Trust Bank, and Ivy Hall at Yale University. I believe they may have been completed at the time of the 150th anniversary of the union of the United States. If you or anyone else is interested in seeing or showing these etchings (which have been in my family for at least 75 years), please let me know.


Rothenburg OT scene (04/02/04)

I have a Paul Geissler signed, colored etching of a Rothenburg OT scene that was purchased in Rothenburg OT in 1956. The scene is of the Roeder side street looking toward the Roeder Gate. The most charming feature is the clothing shop in the right fore-front with a men's hats on a hanging rack in front of the shop. There are also rolls of cloth in front of the shop and a cloth cutter in the background. The etching was produced in 1920.
Does anyone have knowledge of this etching? Any information would be appreciated.  Kenneth Loh 


Marienplatz in Munich(01/29/04)

Hi! I have a print of Marienplatz in Munich, with the Glockenspiel in the  background. It is a color etching, done in pencil, and signed, "Paul Gessler  1920". It is on ivory paper and the paper is a little over 14 inches wide and a little over 17 inches long. Under the picture on the right side is  written "Munchen" and on the left side "original von Prof. Paul Geissler". Could you tell me how much this is worth? Thank you.


Cathedral by Von Prof. Paul Geissler (01/14/04)

I have an original etching of a Cathedral by Von Prof. Paul Geissler. On the left corner Mailand is enscribed in pencil, on the right hand corner it is signed by Paul Geissler which is underlined and then Milano is underneath his signature. This must be the location of the cathedral. The etching is so detailed, with carvings of statues and saints, the scale of the people on the street gives the illusion that this cathedral is massive, there are two detailed buildings in the background. I am looking for information and value about this original work of art.

I would appreciate being contacted at: . Or search Deborah Shemesh on the Internet.

Etching of Paul Geissler (09/13/03)

I have come upon a Paul Geissler etcing approx 12 x16. It is framed and preserved in a plastic covering that does not hinder the appearance of the picture. I have unable to determine if the picture is of a castle or a cathedral. I am looking to see about the value of this particular etching. I have been unable to locate it anyway on the net. The etching is dated 1922 and the word original is written in the left hand cover by the date. There is other written right off of the date but is it hard to read due to penmanship. Over in the right cover is clearly Paul Geissler. Can you help me any of my questions?
