JOSEPH GEORG WINTTER
1751 Munich 1789

Electoral Palatinate Bavarian
Court and Hunting Engraver

whose delicate and sophisticated drawings and watercolors
–  more numerous than his only just about 137 mostly smaller etchings  –

need  great  experience .

The contemporary Wilhelm Gottfried von Moser 1788 about Wintter :

“ The  drawing  is  fine,  and  the  engraving  well ,
always  better  than  Riedinger’s  (sic!) ”

(Forst-Archiv vol. IV).

And 1851 Dr. G. K. Nagler wrote in his Künstler-Lexicon :

“ Winter appears in these drawings in a very advantageous way ,
since they are done quite as beautifully as witty .
His etchings are excellent, too ,
and stand in their treatment between those by Hollar and Riedinger (sic!) . ”

“ Many thanks for your message. Thank you very much for sending the (Anthonie) Waterloo … I am grateful to you for the opportunity to buy the etching. It was interesting to learn about its provenance … The Waterloo etching arrived safely today, beautifully wrapped. Thank you very much indeed ”
