Johann Jacob Haid

Kleineislingen 1704 – Augsburg 1767

“ Of outstanding importance is … Johann Jacob, the founder of the publishing house, who … belongs to the most important representatives in the field of mezzotint of the late baroque and rococo. Frequently the H. worked together with the Rugendas, as Georg Philip I was married to a woman from the family H. … Initially … active as portrait painter … he interested himself increasingly in engraving and mezzotint, in which he rose technically to mastership and almost a monopoly in Augsburg … From a series of artist portraits after designs by the director of the Augsburg academy, Johann Georg Bergmüller, nine sheets are known today ”
