    William Unger signed color etching. I've have this etching for a few years. I have researched it and can only find two other color etchings of ladies signed also with the little drawing of a flower in the center bottom next to the name. I wondered who is is and what year and why the flower?

      William Unger (1837–1932), a prolific German graphic artist, made hundreds of reproductive etchings after paintings by old master and contemporary artists. He also etched sculptures. His etchings were widely published in many editions in Europe and the United States. A volume titled The Works of William Unger came out in New York in 1876, and Sylvester R. Koehler included his work in Foreign Etchings (1887). Unger’s prints also were issued in portfolios of loose etchings and appeared in a number of American publications, such as Koehler’s American Art Review. William Unger’s name was familiar to many Americans in the last quarter of the 19th century. In addition to his graphic work, Unger was also was an influential professor of graphic arts at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts (Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien). He received medals for his prints in Paris, Vienna, and Berlin
      I notice . a few other older etchings of W U with Illustrations one had a a little face. one had a house ,.. roycroft earlier selected books had some special books with Illustrations .. plus the fact he was a graphic artist could mean any thing by putting a flower as well..but could also help date it ..don't know ... most likely you'll have to hunt down a collect of him or a museum .. that has his collection there..good luck
