John W. Reps about J. Bachmann in Views and Viewmakers of Urban America:

No finer artist of the city views worked in America than John Bachmann... Those he executed during the decade of the 1850s are particularly outstanding and are justifiably regarded by collectors and curators as among the finest American views to be found.
