Otto Knirsch (Lithographer)
References: Peters, America on Stone, p. 253. Knirsch appears to have started working for Nathaniel Currier in 1853. His best known work for Currier is "The Road-Winter" (1853), which, according to Peters, is a portrait of Mr. and Mrs. Nathaniel Currier. Peters also writes that Knirsch lived in Hoboken, New Jersey, and later opened a lithography drawing school there. Other sources say he later went into the lithography business for himself.
