Ernest C. Rost painting
The my wife's great-great uncle, Clinton Kirby Hunter, married Ernest C. Rost's sister, Cornelia K. Rost. We have a painting of a bearded man dressed in a red cape and hat--perhaps a bishop? It is signed "E Rost". Is there a catalog of Rost's works?

Ernest C. Rost
I have a framed print by Ernest C. Rost titled "In the Berkshire Hills" dated 1890,appears to be signed lower left corner of print and top left says "Copyright 1890 by Fisher, Adler & Schwartz New York. I found it when I was in my teens in the loft of my parents turn of the century garage. It appears to be in the original mahogany frame under glass I wiped the glass and frame with a damp cloth to clean and it looks great! that is the only cleaning I've ever done and 40 years later I still have it hanging in my home. I love it.

Ernest C. Rost
I have what I think are three of his works. They have no signature on any of them. But the images I have seen through online research, make me certain they were all done by Ernest C. Rost. I would just like to attach something to the backs of these pieces of artwork I have about the artist. Thanks!

I also have a Rost, which i love. It needs restoration, but I am discouraged because it is so expensive. Does anyone have experience with having one of these restored, assuming i can find out whether it is an original?

E C ROST
I have a picture titled A Bend in the River ca. 1890 with the title in the lower right hand corner along with the words etched by Ernest C. Rost...upper left corner copyright 1890 Fishel, Adler & Schwartz, New York. Original frame and glass as far as I can tell. Honestly can't tell if it's a print and I can't find anything at all about this particular title. Any info would be helpful. It hung in my great aunts childhood home until I inherited it 3 years ago. Just looking for info.

E. C. Rost
I have an E.C. Rost, no title Publisher named on the top left. Artist signed bottom left. I have been doing lots of searching and seen lots of his work. My Etching has somthing i have not seen before, the signiture has a long tail on the bottom of the right leg of the "R" and the S is backwards in the form of a Z. If anybody knows anything about this i would like to know. I have another etching and it is like all the others i have seen.

Steve Metzler

E. C. Rost
Sandra (and others) There are several different "quality" and "original" details to watch out for when buy/selling etching attributed to E.C. Rost. Be aware that many of his etchings exist because his printer/publisher made thousands of copies of several of his engravings - and wrote "Etched by E. C. Rost" in pencil on the print to lead the buyers to believe they were "originals" He sued the printer over this issue and soon after stopped doing etchings.
He did do sketches as well, and they are harder to identify. He started painting in oil, did sketches of manor homes for important people, then did engraving, and final switched to photography.

A good 'google' will bring you many hits but few definitive answers.

"Different" E. C. Post etching

"Different" E. C. Post etching
I have been researching the etching I have, but cannot find any like the one I have and I was wondering if anyone else has one or knows anything about one like this...
1) It appears to be an original on wafer-thin-type drawing paper and not a print on heavy paper
2)Top Left corner the publisher is Radthe & Lauchner NY 1893
3) Bottom Left E C ROST looks hand written
4) Bottom Right signiture is in blue/black pen and is scribbled something that looks like Emmm Co Zo (Obviously it's his name; just didn't know if this was his regular signature)
Bottom left under the signature and about an inch from the marginnn is what looks like a black ink sketch of park of an old water mill wheel

If anyone knows anything about all this, I'd greatly appreciate the info. Just wondering if I have something different/original or if it's just another of the many "signed" prints out there

Thanks for your time,
Sandra

E Rost etching
I have an EE Ross print and I cannot find a title on it. It's stunning. 1891 it has 2 Powerful trees on the left, a group of trees on the right,a road that goes through the middle to the back that has what looks like two houses and I think a church steeple on right. My framer was able to see barely that it was printed by someone. It's printed with depth to it.

Ernest C Rost etching
I have an etching by Rost which is signed on the left, under picture:
"Etched by Ernest C. Rost" The title is in the middle bottom and says "The Old Homestead" but it is not the one by the same name at the Library of Congress. The glass is old and has bubbles, frame is brown with raised flowers.
There is no date or any other writings. I bought it at a thrift shop in Gilroy, CA in the 80s.

Ernest Rost 1895 Etching - River Path
I can identify the exact location of River Path, as I have a companion etching "Home Sweet Home" showing the begining of River Path which went behind Ernest Rost home and ended at the Still Water River in Ohio. Both etchings were back dated to show how it looked when Ernest was nine years old.

e c rost etching
I recently purchased an Ernest Rost etching at an auction for .50 cents. The frame is dry and brittle the glass is fine. I took the picture out of the frame but the backing on the frame fell apart. I still have frame and glass. The etching is also dry and small parts of the paper have fallen off. The etching is in rough condition with water stains. There is no title for the etching but it is dated 1890, and is signed by the artist. The size of just the etching is 9" by 24" and at the bottom left is a small etching of rowboat in water. The etching itself has two buildings(one almost looks like a church), several trees, birds flying over the church, in front is a small stone bridge, water in front, with two birds skimming the water. E C Rost signature(right bottom) almost looks like pencil, on left name is printed and fancy. Published by Shwartz of New York. I was considering having it restored. At this point I'm not sure what to do.

"My Old Home" by Ernest C. Rost
My sister recently passed on to me a framed etching that used to hang in our great aunt's and grandmother's house. It reads "My Old Home" and "Etched by Ernest C. Rost" in script on the lower right border of the print. Above the upper left edge of the work, it reads "Published by Fishel, Adler & Schwartz New York." The subject is a stone cottage surrounded by a number of distinctive trees, with a picket-fenced yard, a covered well, and a path up to the cottage from bottom center. There are a few flowers in the foreground. To the left and behind the cottage is a lake with woods, a couple of houses and a winding road on the far shore. The print is framed in beautiful cherry wood and appears to have float glass. As to condition, there are several vertical brownish bands and a couple of brownish spots. The paper sealing the back side of the frame is fragile and cracked in places. I have enjoyed all the information and interest in Mr. Rost's etchings found in this and other postings. As yet, I have not read any that describe this particular etching. It is undated, but may be around the 1890 that others mention.

Emily Martin

EC Rost/engraver
I just acquired a piece of art by ECRost. It is 30'x 10". It is dated 1890 following his signature. The title on the frame is "On the Delaware".
It is a river basin with few large trees and houses. I was interested to find this painting was not mentioned in the comments, which were great fun to read.
It came from my grandfather's
home in Oakdale NE. He got it as a prize for correctly guessing the number of seeds in a pumpkin on display in a store window....1907. Oakdale was and still is a very "small" town. The conditon is poor but still a joy to look at.

Ernest C Ross
I have an Ernest C Ross etching titled"Long Island Farm" It sounds very similar to a picture that some of you described but are unsure of the location. It has a long avenue of trees and stone wall on the left, farmhouse with a hipped roof on the right and a village with church spire in the distance. In the right foreground there is a birch tree. The curious thing is I notice a lot of his work is described as water damaged as they have two brown vertical marks - mine has these but assumed they were caused by possibly being above a radiator at some time. As I am an etcher I now wonder if these are in fact caused by either a clamp when drying the print or some similar process. I would love to hear if anyone else has these marks.

Ernest Christian Ross Sketch
I have a Ernest Christian Ross Sketch.
It is dated twice, once in the upper left and once in the lower left.
In the upper left, there is the wriging "Copyright 1892 by Fishel Adler, + Schwardig, New York." In the lower left, there is the writing "E S ROST 92" and in the Lower right it is titled "Idle Moments, Etched by Ernest C. Ross"
It is in it's original frame with original glass. I have determined that it is not a print because it has no printer pixilation what-so-ever.
If anyone can give me some information about this art piece, that would be great!

Thanks again!

E C Rost Steel Engraving & Myra Robi Mystery
picked this up a few years ago and in the upper left it says copyright 1895 by E Rost. It is remarked and signed Myra Robi - there in lies the mystery. Who is Myra Robi? The paper is somewhat brittle but only has one foxing mark in the lower left area. Someone wrote on the reverse side: steel envgraving. I was told Myra Robi may have been a name his sister used, she was also an engraver. In any case, any information or thoughts would be appreciated since I am not an art expert.

We have an ink drawing print by E. C. Rost called "By The Wayside" This drawing depicts an old farmhouse setting in the country with a picked fence lining the property, big trees and a farm house with thached roofs. We have estimated it to be over 100 years old. At the bottom of this picture is a drawing of a 3 leaf clover. On the upper left corner it reads Copyrighted by Radthe Lauchner VCP. 1893. At the bottom left corner after his signature it reads copyright N.Y. Could anyone help me find any information about this lovely drawing? Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

The Old Elm Road
From reading the previous posts regarding this print,it would appear that it is quite common.
I recieved mine from my parents when they relocated to Michigan from Arizona. At the time, it was rolled up and being stored in a plastic bag. Thank goodness for the dry Arizona climate!
I remember the print from the days of my childhood and asked my parents if I could have it for reframing. It hangs with pride in my home and I love it!
My grandkids love art and someday it will be theirs to share.

Rost Etching
Over 30 years ago my mother bought an etching in an antique store in Tennessee. She later gave it to me as I had always loved to look at it. It is signed "etched by Ernest C. Rost", and has a small etched symbol beside the name. I cannot tell what the symbol is maybe a crown or hay bale. I put acid free matting around it in 1994 when I got it, but there is some significant acid streaking as well as blotches. It is still very fine. If anyone knows more about it or it's value, I would love to hear from you.

Old Elm Road by Ernest C. Rost
The Old Elm Road -
Ernest C. Rost

In the fall of 2007, while visiting relatives in eastern Kentucky, I found a remarkable framed etching of the Old Elm Road. It was in a quaint antique store in the small town of Grayson. I didn't have a clue who Ernest Rost was, but I was just fascinated by the workmanship - - so I bought it. It is in excellent condition - - original frame, glass, and all. After returning to Texas, I did a lot of research - trying to find out as much as I could about him (Rost).
He was a talented, productive, if not somewhat eccentric individual. I'm proud to have a copy of his phenomenal work.

e c rost, old elm road
I have an etching of Old Em Road also. I found it in my barn. My grand father used to clean house in Woods Hole MA on Cape Cod and sometimes he would get paid with things other than money or it could have been something they didn't want anymore. My etching is in good condition and is in a heavy frame with old glass. It has a gold strip on the frame that says The Old Elm Road etched by E.C. Rost. In the left hand corner is his name and date of 1890. I thought it was orginal but I don't know as I've seen noe that there is at least 2 more out there. I love this piece. I would love to here from others who have the same. Did he make lots of prints of his art? I'd love to learn more about him.

Etchings vs. pen & ink drawings
I have several pieces of art which are "Pen & Ink"; - one is by E.C. Rost - "The Riverside Cottage" - 1890, and I am a bit puzzled as to why so many people refer to this form of art as "Etching". I have always understood "etching" to be that form of art wherein a form of art board is covered with a coat of black ink or paint,upon which the artist then actually "dry etches" his/her chosen subject "into the black coating" with various width steel scribers, resulting in a piece of art which, for lack of knowledge of the proper term, might be referred to as a form of "negative" i.e. - the subject is revealed by "removing the black medium" from the surface of the art board to creat the artwork, as opposed to "adding material" such as in oil, or water-color painting, or as in pen & ink drawings. All of which leads to the question, - Are we not in error when we refer to R.C. Rost's "Pen & Ink" as "Etchings"?

Ernest Rost
While moving my grandmother in, about, 1985 we happened to run across a published ink print by R.C.Rost dated 1890 and published by Fishel, Adler, and Schwartz. It has no title. It has a large tree in the center of the print with a rock wall on the left hand side close to the tree. Across a lake or a stream on the left hand side is a village. In the forground is a remark of a man in a boat who is fishing. Any information would be appreciated.

Ernest Christian Rost
I came accros 2 Rost prints in a firehouse auction. Everything about them was in bad shape, but the frames were cherry colored oak with metal pipeing which I restored, the glass was pre-industrial with that ripple effect. I sent the prints to the Pensylvania Art Conservatory were they removed the foxing, waterstains and made them appear new. They mounted on conservation paper and sent them back to me, then I had them remounted in the original frames with quality matting that has a light green leaf appearence. They are outstanding and I have no intention of selling them and at auction I would guess they would be received quite well ever if Rost is not recognized as well as I believe he should have been. His art is quite beautiful.

Old farmhouse etching by E.C. Rost
An old farmhouse with a thatched roof a couple of horses out in front ready to hook up to a wagon. A bird house in the yard and a church in the background. On the lower left is a couple of hay stacks that look to be a practice etching. I'm wondering when this might have been done.

I purchased a Rost today. I was unfamiliar with him until now and would like any information available. I was very taken with the fine detail of his work. I have no idea of value. This is about 24x9 in an old glassed frame, has a curved road with trees on the left, a house on the right, a village with church in background and his name with 1890 bottom left, Fishel Adler & Sschwartz New York top left and a pencil signature E.C. Rost bottom right. Also a partial etching of a tree trunk on bottom left border. Thank you for any information.

The Old Meeting House
I have an original lithograph/etching in a beautiful frame. It is titled "The Old Meeting House." It has E C Rost in the bottom left hand side. I wonder what it is a picture of. I always thought it was in Providence, but maybe not.

Earnest C. Rost
I own two etchings, I purchased them at an auction for $75. I sent them to the Pennsylvania Art Conservatory where the restored them to nearly new condition. They are spectacular, I rematted and remounted the etchings in the beautiful red oak frames that I reconditioned. Instead of numbers in the lower left corner he placed a rabit in one and birds and a nest in the other with Singiture in the right lowwer right corner. The prints are 8X17 in size and depict a beautiful winter landscape of a road and the other of a similar road if not the same in spring. His work, is underappreciated and has gone unnoted in the art world.

Info for Christian H. Rost
I have 3 pen and ink sketchings by Christian H. Rost or H. Christian Rost. The sketch is very old, as are my eyes at this point. I feel the sketches I have must belong to the Rost family I located on this site.
The title of the largest of my sketches is: The Edge of The Forest.
I'd appreciate any info anyone may have. The only info I've been able to get concerning Christian H. Rost is that he was one of the very first engravers at the mint in Philadelphia.

E. Crost
I have either an etching or a lithograph done in tan and brown tones. It's dated 1891 and measures 17 3/4" x 12 1/2". I believe the frame is the original.
The glass is VERY old. There is no title. It has trees, a road, fences, and homes. Somewhat like a country village scene. It has an odd paper matting (behind the picture) to appear like wood that is mitered at the corners. I can supply a photo of this picture. I would love to know more about it. The signature looks like it is E. Crost. Thank You

A Bend in the River
It was so nice to read of the life of Ernest C. Rost, the man who created my print named A Bend in the River. I have had the print for 25 years and have always wondered about the artist. I have seen two other prints (owned by a friend) and two of what appeared to be watercolors but may have been hand tinted prints (at an antique store). It is nice to finally know about Mr. Rost.

Italian Landscape, 1907
Dear Gerry,

Hello. I'm the author of Ernest C. Rost's biography on this website.

I was wondering if you might be willing to take some photos, including signature, of the etching and mail to me. I may be incorrect, but there was another very recognized engraver of the period, Ernest D. Roth, who often did landscapes of Italian subjects. I think you may have an Ernest D. Roth, rather than an Ernest C. Rost (there was also and H.C. Rost an H.A. Rost, both publishers of etchings and postcards, not related to Ernest. It gets very confusing!). It would be wonderful if were wrong .... I'd love to see a Rost Italian landscape!

Let me know if you'd be willing to send some photos. Perhaps I can help with the identification.

All best,

Jonathan

Ernest C. Rost
I own a large framed etching entitled "New England Farmhouse" dated 1890. I received it from the estate of my grandparents. I know nothing about it and am curious to know it's value, if any. My grandparents were common tobacco and potato farmers and did not collect art as such. Therefore I find this to be a curious possession of theirs.
