Johann Elias Ridinger, The going back at the Wall

The  sovereign  sujet  of  the  majestic  set

in  an  impression  of  splendid  chiaroscuro .

Thienemann + Schwarz 636. – New (or Vienna) Riding School XV (Th., dated, sheet 9). – Typographic watermark (presumably WANGEN as so characteristic for the contemporary impressions). – Trimmed within the still 7 mm wide white platemark. In this isolated small tears backed acid-freely, of which only one – imperceptible in the subject – still extends 2.2 cm into the background hatching of the subject. The text field besides especially in the center a little creased and there as also at one lower corner provisionally backed from old as with respect to the general delicacy of these large-sized sheets as the rareness of the set – Reich auf Biehla had it only in the new impressions of c. 1850 (no. 144; 1894) – should not be overrated though.

„ Ganz herzlichen Dank für Ihre netten Wünsche und die sehr interessante Lektüre (Wild + Hund 23/2008), über die ich mich sehr gefreut habe. Mein Glückwunsch zu diesem schönen Artikel über Ihr Ridinger Wirken und die damit verbundene und verdiente Anerkennung. An meiner ‚Ridinger – Sammlung‘ erfreue ich mich stets aufs Neue. Schon deshalb war die Anschaffung des Pompadour Bandes (1998) ein guter Kauf … Mit besten Grüßen, Ihr … “
