What  is  this ?

In  Cassel  it  runs , to  Leipsic  it  wanders ?

Right , the exhibition “3 x Tischbein and European Painting about 1800” still running in Cassel till February 26 and then moving on to Leipsic (March 18 – June 4).

And of course this event demands for present addition resonance even more so as

Johann  Heinrich  Tischbein  II

(Haina 1742 – Cassel 1808)

– elder brother of the so-called “Goethe Tischbein” and here not favored for his animal and hunting prints alone – should not fit by no means into the exhibition concept of the just three ( just three Tischbeins [=table-legs]! , honored museum folks, really! ) widely known members of the famous Hessian artist family. To direct the attention to his merits therefore widens the field of vision and attracts the dealing advocate of art even more so as it was exactly Goethe, and even just during his Italian travels as the reference to the “Goethe” Tischbein, who noted the excellent words in Verona September 17, 1786

“ In the distance only one learns of the top artists, and often one is content with their names; however, if one approaches this starry sky and now also those of second and third degree start to twinkle, the  world  becomes  far  and  the  art  rich. ”

How  far  and how rich proves Johann Heinrich Jun.’s here present,

most  exquisitely  bound

Johann Heinrich Tischbein jr., Collection of 170 Engravings

in  red  morocco

and  case-protected

published posthumously between 1808 + 1827

“ Collection  of  170  Engravings ”

(recte “throughout etched in copper”), that Nagler qualifies not entirely correctly in his 1848 listing under no. 43 as “Complete Edition of his Works” though not comprising all sheets listed, and he himself talking of “about 184” elsewhere, while 1939 Thieme-Becker, all etching exercises included, come to about 350 sheet. In any case the collection present here is

the  most  comprehensive  edition

and therefore the documentation of the work pure and simple,

dominated  by  the  animal  and  hunting  pieces

but nevertheless of course offering far more, also warming up the animal pieces by local stuff.


Worked after pictures especially also of the legendary art gallery at Cassel whose First Inspector he was for decades, as after designs of his uncle and teacher, Johann Heinrich I, the “Cassel Tischbein”, and own ones from nature

as  results  of  not  least  his  personal  passion  for  the  hunt .

With just the use of most different copper techniques, repeatedly also of colored papers, presenting the eye with optical variety and charming view-points. This special spectrum

Johann Heinrich Tischbein jr., Attempts in Etched Sheets

then also stressed by Walter Schürmeyer as an essential artistic characteristic sui generis:

“ This nephew of the famous Johann Heinrich T. (I) was

an  extremely  industrious  and  skilled  etcher .

He illustrated his ‘Abbreviated Treatise on the Art of Etching’ (Cassel 1790) with 84 sheets etched by himself. Already in 1785 the ‘Attempts of Several Manners in Etching’ (12 sheet after older masters) had been published. 1789 he again published ‘Attempts in Etched Sheets in Several Manners’ (64 ll.). The complete edition of his works comprises 170 sheet (sic!) after older masters (as as exclusively not correct, see below). After his death 50 of his sheets became a set ‘The Fair Game’ in Zwickau in 1827 (Nagler 45; Lindner 11.2083.01 ‘… 30 not numbered sheets onto which the hunting prints are loosely mounted’, otherwise erroneously as Joh. Hch. T. I). A further set ‘Animal Studies’ same place (1827) contains 30 sheet (Nagler 45; under here previously traded other title of 36 sheet) ”

(Löffler-Kirchner, Lexikon des gesamten Buchwesens III [1937], 402 f.).

Said compilations each of throughout old or previous impressions, trimmed in the manner of the old albums within the white platemark, in formats of 2⅛-8⅜ × 2⅝-10⅞ in (5.4-21.2 × 6.7-27.7 cm) and mounted in points on – here 59 – underlay sheets.

Ten of the works are

Pointer before Pheasants

(partly) colored.

Sheet 65, Two quarrelling Horsemen (Nagler 16), obviously already taken out by old and replaced by a washed brush drawing in grey + brown on old laid paper of two billy-goats near brick-work observed by a boy (5⅛ × 7¼ in [130 × 185 mm]), onto which later again an etched “Resting Group of a Billy-Goat with Two Sheep” after Johann Heinrich Roos (4¾ × 7 in [12 × 17.7 cm]; 10-13 mm wide margins) was laid upon that has been loosened at both the lower corners for lifting up.

The preservation corresponding to the excellent quality of the impressions. To be mentioned just isolated little foxing spots, only sheet 147 (Hardenberg Castle near Göttingen) especially in the sky part more impairingly, and a partially appearing faint tidemark in the right lower corner of the mounting paper.

The  solid  external  shine

But  first

The  170-Course-Menue  in  the  Noble  Cover

“ (for  whose)  excellence … of  especially  the  hunting  pieces  (the  gentlemen) … Mellin … Wildungen  and  Hartig  (could)  be  mentioned … ”

Zwickau, Literatur- und Kunst=Comptoir, between 1808 + 1827. Large fol. 2 unpag. ll. title, preface + contents and besides an additional old washed brush drawing in grey + brown by other hand said 170  (1 of which exchanged)  etchings (2⅛-8⅜ × 2⅝-10⅞ in [5.4-21.2 × 6.7-27.7 cm]), 10 of these (partially) colored, in original mounting  in points on 59 sheet.

Ruby  red  morocco

with 5 ornamental raised bands, green back-plate, artist’s name on front cover + ridinger handlung niemeyer on its inner cover, Ridinger stag vignette and line on both boards, all gilt tooled in 23.5 carat, in equal half morocco slipcase with the stag vignette on both boards.

Not included from Nagler’s detail listing 1-39 items 1-3 (statue of landgrave Frederick II of Hesse, portraits of spouses Kästner), 8/9 (Augustus + Cinna, Augustus at Alexander’s Tomb), 14 (Old Female Beggar), 29 (Stags in Landscape after Potter) + 39 (Grasshopper Flight near Bender, “rare to be found”).

Here  available  for  the  first  time

the copy is identical with the one recorded for 1964 + 1980 (too early as “c. 1800”) in the Yearbook of Auction Results and further ones have not become known here. The quite considerable rarity therefore to be assumed is supported by its

missing  in  the  early  “national”  bibliographies  of  the  19th  century,

but  also in  the  National  Union  Catalogue  of  our  days .

It results inevitably anyway just by the fact of the mounting compilation (plate dates here up to 1795). Neither Nagler nor Löffler-Kirchner mention a date for the “complete edition”, the posthumous edition of present copy results from the preface.

The sheets, executed partially with more or less, but also completely in aquatint, here and there even in vernis mou, and present in excellent print quality, are partially inscribed with name(s)/monogram of artists + date, less with title and sporadically with dedication. For those in reddish/brownish print or on colored paper see below. – Title + contents on laid paper watermarked with large fleur-de-lis and Whatman resp.

I.)  Human  Heads  (16)

Head of a Turk

First the title engraving “Experiments in Etched Sheets by J. H. Tischbein jun” after Agricola to the 12-sheet set Nagler 40 of 1775. – Otherwise i. a. the portraits of count A. von Veltheim (on brown paper) and the Göttingen jurist Georg Heinrich Ayrer (Meiningen 1702 – 1774) as well as heads after Lievens + Jordaens (1 each) and Rembrandt (3, one of which – no. 10 – not related as after Rembrandt, but standing in connection with his self portrait to the right Bartsch 27 [ills. Schwartz, R. Etchings, 1977, 27] worked by Tischbein presumably after the 1634 etching in reverse by the Rembrandt pupil Joris van Vliet). Six of the works after own design.

II.)  Historical  Figures  (19)

Four of these after Johann Heinrich Tischbein I, the uncle. – Further after Teniers (The Philosopher, rich with symbols of vanity; The Scissors-Grinder;

Johann Georg Pforr, Galoping Horse

Johann  Georg  Pforr

(friend + brother-in-law of Tischbein, his “horse pieces generally (were) admired and praised as unsurpassed”, Nagler; here, very fine, with light bridle, blanket + portmanteau, sprightly to the left), Philip Reinagle, Johann Friedrich Steinkopf and anonymous. – Otherwise after Berchem, Potter (4, among these two horned cattle pendants “from the famous painting … in the … Gallery at Cassel … [called] the Pissing Cow” which Nagler reckons among Tischbein’s most excellent sheets), Willem Romeyn, Johann Heinrich (7) + Philipp Peter (1) Roos and anonymous.

IV.)  Horses  and  Horsemen  (see to III, too)  (2 instead of 3)

Besides the “Man on Horseback with Coat and with the Hat on his Head” (Nagler 17, “delicately etched”) the famous sujet “Falconer on Horseback” with two hounds (N. 15 erroneously “before two horses”) after – inscribed: M. D. Junge 1635 –

Jan  Martsen  de  Jonge  1635

For the sheet of the two quarreling horsemen replaced otherwise see above.

V.)  Hounds  (15)

Besides Tischbein’s own pointer

Tischbein's own Pointer

printed in brown with the owner’s mark “T”

on the collar worth prominent rendering especially the American hound Trimm of prince Friedrich von Waldeck with the collar monogram “F. F. Z. W.” and the princely Waldeck head equerry von Schünstedt’s “famous hunting (dachs)hund Klopan drawn from life in Wildungen etched by J. H. Tischbein 1794” (so the written pre-owner’s caption in German) with the collar monogram “S” – Further Great Dane, boar hound, three greyhounds, a pointer, three hunting hounds, among these “Walkire”, a lying hound printed in brown (delicate sheet) + Pomeranian dogs.

VI.)  Hunting  Pieces  (9)

First as the most grandiose sheet of the œuvre the

boar  hunt  on  blue  paper

Joh. Hch. Tischbein, Boar Hunt on Blue Paper

“ ( Dedicated  to  the  captain  of  horse  Sir  von  Schwertzell

by his most humble friend and servant J. H. Tischbein 1786.)”. – Worth prominent rendering further Ruthart’s suspense-packed scenery of the two stags attacked by three leopards (stag + deer, colored, as with 7½ × 9⅜ in [19.2 × 23.8 cm] original-sized repetition in reverse of the Ruthart etching Hollstein 3) / Potter’s Ox Hunt with the Three Horsemen and the Bison pestered by the Four Hounds, one of these – as quite unusual depiction – is thrown through the air (5⅞ × 9⅜ in [15 × 23.8 cm]) / The Boar Hunt with the Four Hounds (4½ × 6⅝ in [11.3 × 16.9 cm]) / The Chief Boar hunted by a Hound (3⅝ × 6¾ in [9.1 × 17.2 cm], very delicate) / The Fugitive Stag of Twelve Points at the Slope seized by the Furious Pack, three of them done though, (6⅞ × 9½ in [17.5 × 24 cm]) / The shot Stag of Eight Points Hunted by a Hound (5¾ × 8 in [14.5 × 20.2 cm], marvelously delicate), drawn by Tischbein from life as, too, the Hare Hawking (3⅛ × 10⅛ in [7.8 × 25.8 cm]) / The Bear tearing down a Bull (colored, 8 × 10½ in [20.2 × 26.7 cm]).

VII.)  Living  Game  (14)

With the stag of fourteen points (?) after Ridinger (Schwarz I, XXIV “of 16 points”, 8 × 10½ in [20.4 × 26.6 cm]), inscribed: Joh: El: Ridinger del: 1734 (sic, contrary to Schwarz!) / (Dedicated to commander Sir von Veltheim by his most humble friend and servant / J. H. Tischbein jun: 1785).

Then  as  drawn  by  Tischbein  from  life :

Fallow-deer in the Deerpark of District President (Heinrich) von Meysenbug zu Riede (1742-1810; near Wolfhagen/Cassel, 7½ × 10⅝ in [19.2 × 27 cm]; two royal deer with fallow-doe + kid, set back on the left at the start of a tree-lined walk frolicking horse + sheep, at its end monument with figurine) /

White  High  Class  Game …

VIII.)  Dead  Game  (10)

Three stags, bucks + boars each and a chamois, all drawn by Tischbein from life. – On this the introduction :

“ According to confirmed reports a wild boar he had shot in the area of Göttingen offered the first motive to this as to his efforts in etching. Glad about his hunting luck on the spot he did a sketch of the game shot by him which he later etched. Impressions of this pleased both friends and connoisseurs so much that he, encouraged from all sides, executed several drawings and plates of game partially shot by himself and other dead game, partially of living game, from which gradually the present collection emerged. ”

IX.)  Wild  Winged  Game  (9)

After Oudry Ducks in the Reed near a Property Surprised by Predatory Bird (7⅛ × 9⅝ in [18.1 × 24.4 cm]) + Pointer at Pheasants (8 × 10¾ in [20.3 × 27.4 cm]; colored) / by Tischbein An Ostrich from Life in Cassel + Goshawk Striking a Duck, equally from life. – Furthermore a capercaillie, vulture, black stork, pheasant and casuar.

X.)  Wild  Animals  (20)

All (recte 19) by Tischbein from life. In particular four lions, one of which attacking a leopard, twice the same leopard with two young ones, the first inscribed “(… with its young ones cubbed in the year 1774, in the menagerie at Cassel / H. Tischbein Jun. fec. 1783)” (5¾ × 7⅛ in [14.6 × 18.1 cm]), tiger (2), hyena, black + white bear, three wolves (the lying third of these according to the inscription after the great L. von Wildungen, Electoral Hesse head forester in Marburg), badger, beaver, young elephant (“Goethe Elephant”; came 1773 at the age of about two years as wedding present by the House of Orange for landgrave Frederick II to Cassel. 1780 killed in an accident, the skeleton was dissected by Samuel Thomas von Soemmerring as the first complete specimen of a large mammal in northern Europe. 1784 Goethe borrowed the skull for his studies on the premaxillary bone), buffalo, fox + wild tomcat, the latter “… den 19ten Febr. 1783 / H. Tischbein Jun. fec.”.

XI.)  Landscapes  (14)

First the title engraving “(Experiments in Etched Sheets in Different Manners by Johann Heinrich Tischbein Jun: Inspector of the Princely Gallery at Cassel)” to the 64-sheet set Nagler 4 of 1789. – Then Large Landscape after Rembrandt with the two huntsmen from 1788 (7⅛ × 10 in [18.1 × 25.5 cm]) / after Joh. Hch. Tischbein I

Dwelling  of  Democrites  ( with  hunter )

Johann  Heinrich  jr. “painted landscape and animals and after a longer stay in Holland he settled down in Cassel”, where in 1775 he became inspector of the gallery there especially famous for its Netherlandish paintings. He “was, too, – so Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie XXXVIII, 364 f. continues –

an  able  engraver ”.

On this latter occupation 50 years before Nagler remarked, however, his sheets were “indeed not without interest, but they are not of high value”. What surprises on the side of the otherwise that knowledgeable Nagler, for they distinguish themselves by great intuition + natural representation. Personally

“ (He  loved)  the  hunt  almost  passionately

and  practiced  it  besides  his  art  for  relaxation  and  amusement …

On the excellence of his works , especially the hunting pieces ,

the greatest praises of famous connoisseurs , as by a count von Mellin , von Wildungen and Hartig, could be cited,

who  acknowledged  and  praised  in  his  works

the  lucky  effect  of  the  rare  unity

of  the  skilled  artist  and  huntsman  in  one  person ”

(from the foreword).
