The drawing is signed lower right:
Franz Graf v. Kesselstatt
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franz_von_Kesselstatt

I haven't yet deciphered the word (place?) after the name.
EDIT: I believe it says "in dem September 1793" - "in the September 1793".
I first thought that the third letter was Z.

Regards,
Vietato

I had forgotten that redsoxski rarely responds to the answers he gets. It wonít happen again!

It seems to be a trait among Americans not to express the slightest gratitude for information provided. I'm having a hard time getting into that mindset.

I keep a list of members I donít want to engage with. Most people on that list havenít participated for years though. Maybe because the forum got less responsive to their queries.

Regards,
Vietato

Vietato: How did you know I was American?...Could it have been the below exchange of information that hurt your feelings... I helped someone and got pleasure in helping... I find Americans to be very giving and helpful with their time and money... while certain cultures like to take.... and have their asses kissed.
I appreciated information you provided yet do not appreciate how sadly insecure you are: Vietato and "friends" please read the rest on this post. Americans show no gratitude...how dare you...open your history book and you will see what no gratitude really means. "posted for my Dad WWII Veteran"

I can't make sense of the signature, but the motif is the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem.
Jerusalem is the rightmost word, insecurely written.

It looks to me as being from the middle or second half of the 20th century. The artist could be from anywhere, although I would have liked the name to be French.

Regards,
Vietato

Etching not engraving...
Israeli artist Meir Gur-Arie (1891-1951). Born in Russia, Gur-Arie studied in Lodz before moving to Israel and studying at the Bezalel Academy in 1909 (one of the Bezalel Academy's earliest students) and etching with Herman Struck. He later taught at the Bezalel Academy and one of the founders of the Workshop for Industrial Design as well as the Union for Hebrew Art.
