Johann Adam Klein (Nuremberg 1792 – 1875 Munich) was a German painter and printmaker. Many of his graphic works display soldiers or figures with various occupations. He also made many etchings of domestic animals.
In very good condition, the image clean and crisp, a dampstain in the lower right margin (not affecting image), and some general soiling and faint foxing in the margin edges.
