    Marius Bauer was not only well-known for his pictures, watercolours and drawings, but also for his many etchings, which are clearly influenced by Rembrandt's oeuvre. Most of Bauer's work shows his love for the Orient, where he travelled extensively. In 1898 he travelled to India and his etchings of scenes from these journeys were widely appreciated, and he was awarded a 'Grand Prix' at the World Exhibition in Paris in 1900.
