1723 – 2020

(all in German)

The 25-year-old Ridinger – thus, as highly interesting, in the same age in which one day Thomas Mann “will lay his international reputation with the ‘Buddenbrooks’” (Lennartz), what still one hundred years later Heinz Berggruen lets ask for the origin of worldly wisdom and maturity for it, in which Gottfried Benn publishes with “Under the Cerebral Cortex” his first prose text, which he later “uses so to speak as quarry” (FAZ 8-24-01 + 8-22-03) – sets up the change of the depiction of heroic acts to the reflection on these – for that in literature still Jacques Louis David and the time of about only 1800 stand – by the drawing Alexander the Great at the Hyphasis in the Punjab, India, in Autumn 326 B.C., not published by engraving, taking up and handling psychologically brilliantly a turning point of world history as together absolutely unprecedentedly civilizing moment. And shall out of this starting hole, also here just like as a quarry and in cooperation with Barthold Heinrich Brockes (d. 1747) as writer, let follow the verdict not only of the Alexander campaign, rather of the claim to might of absolutism, whose representatives worship to him, as a whole by the set Fights of Killing Animals (Thienemann 716-723) worked already in the ’30s, but published only in 1760.

About 1725 Ridinger prints according to Wend[1] “the presumably earliest German mezzotint in colors” by a Stag Hunting (Schwerdt III, plate 214; erlebnis ridinger, p. 5; colored each) and that in chronologically conceivably greatest nearness to the real invention of printing by several plates, Jakob Christoffel Le Blond, which only about 1720 achieved proved results in London.

In 1729 Ridinger publishes, now on his own account, his 36-sheet set “Complete and Exhaustive Representation of the Splendid Princes’ Pleasure or of the Noble Hunt” as prelude like a beat of the drum to a series of primer-like hunting sets.

In 1735 at the latest Ridinger starts his monumental work of the Most Wondrous Deer, see per 1768.

Ridinger is co-editor, co-publisher and co-engraver of Weinmanns 1025-sheet folios “Phytanthoza Iconographia – (Or actual Presentation of several Thousands both indigenous and exotic … collected Plants, Trees, Shrubs, Flowers, Fruit, and Sponges” published from 1735 to 1745 as for its size “alone already a rarity in the botanical literature … but above all first botanical use of the later so-called English color printing, and, as far as Germany is concerned, also almost the one and only … Especially the rich palette of both printed colors and those applied by hand is to be praised, which also in the heyday of the botanical color printing seldom has been reached again and (only far later) surpassed in only a few prints by Turpin (1775-1840; Nissen). – “The book may be called the first successful botanical book using color-printed mezzotint” (Hunt).

From 1738 to 1755 Ridinger publishes with his 126-sheet Design of Several Animals, How such are drawn from Life after their Different Nature, Actions and Passions, along with included Annotations his natural historically large work “in the most public interest” (Th.).

In 1744 Ridinger welcomes by two engravings as documents of a moment of German history the Bavarian elector Karl Albert on occasion of his return to Munich as German Emperor Karl VIIth, whom Goethe’s father owed his “Imperial Councillor”.

In 1744 Ridinger publishes the 16-sheet basic set “Instructive Fables from the Animal Kingdom for Improvement of the Manners and especially for Instruction of the Youth” by which

“(he) pursued a typical purpose of his epoch. A ‘Correction of Manners’ by the morale efficacy of art – albeit in a quite different manner – William Hogarth, almost of the same age as Ridinger, had attempted by his paintings and prints … Yet while Hogarth and Chodowiecki tried to gain recognition for their (identical) ideas by satirical sets, as A Rake’s Progress, 1735 … Ridinger built on the – especially suitable to him (that is, so he himself, ‘since the hoary times of the ancient ages’) – tradition of the animal fable” (Morét)[2]. By which he furthermore at the same time also, creating a new image type, left behind once more tradition and field. For “No similarities to fable illustrations known hitherto” (Bodemann[3]).

In 1746 Ridinger delivers “a few squares” oils to the court of the czar.

The 50-year-old Ridinger treats himself to think about whether he should accept a sequel-order of tsarina Elisaveta Petrovna, daughter of Peter the Great, for further oils in respect of his being fully busied with drawings and etchings, but meaning, so with letter to Wille[4] in Paris of June 29, 1748, “that I myself could not shirk to accept it in view of the former order, hoping to finish these four pieces up to the end of October”.

In 1763 Ridinger’s eldest, Martin Elias, greets – analogous to the father’s 1744 imperial welcome – the Treaty of Hubertusburg, ending the Seven Years’ War as a global conflict of modern dimension and establishing Prussia as European power, by working the Hubertusburg badger after his father’s drawing. Suggestively the badger has been dug there just in the same year, 1724, when Hubertusburg Castle was completed.

In 1768 Ridinger’s sons close by title-engraving their father’s monumental set of the “Representation of the Most Wondrous Deer as other special Animals … on high orders and for the pleasure of all friends and lovers of the rarities showing up in nature” grown since 1735 at the latest by which the master intellectually and graphically opened a new story of animal depiction. That to see in this abundance completed was a substantial co-merit of Martin Elias since whose Hubertusburg badger, see per 1763.

In 1768 Ridinger’s sons close by two title-engravings the Colored Animal Kingdom finished still by the father as one of the finest illuminated animal books of all times. With its 127 sheet it is together the most voluminous of the Ridinger sets.

In 1770 Ridinger’s sons publish the 50-sheet Representation of the Horses after their Principal Colors, worked still by the father, too, as a further highlight of illuminated natural historically book art.

Lord Ribblesdale as a contemporary purchases ca. 900-sheet folios in russia. – See hereto below per 1951.

The Pembroke Library at Wilton House, formed during several generations of important bibliophiles, obtains about 1770 46 suites or part sets with 716 sheets, purchased presumably 1768 in Paris probably by Henry Herbert, 10th Earl of Pembroke, 7th of Montgomery (1734-1794) and bound up for him into five folios of English red morocco as typical for the library.

In 1771 Ferdinand von Kobell, painter’s colleague of the next generation, laments as 31-year-old towards Wille[5] “the bugs of the clique of copperplate engravers in the poor Augsburg” and “that in such a locality one Ridinger – and Rugendas had to live”.

In 1772 Johann Caspar Füssli, painter’s colleague and artists’ biographer of the Ridinger generation, laments towards Wille[6] in Paris “since I have lost Ridinger I do no more find another German friend who pays attention to art”.

In August 1824 the art dealers and publishers Martin Engelbrecht, “since a few years in the possession of Johann Elias Ridinger’s art’s publishing house”, lay out in association with the art dealer Herzberg, both Augsburg, a voluminous subscription program of the works of Ridinger, which latter “still always lives in the most glorious remembrance of the world of artists”. As result of the former small editions proving the multiple rarity of sheets by Ridinger the plates (such ones as unique collector’s pieces now here in stock) delivered “without any refreshing help thanks to the completed copperplate printing and its functional setting impressions … which … surpass older impressions in regard of pureness and power and … will have the virtue to keep their colors in the same state”. What latter examples here attest, but without being in the position to compete with contemporary impressions.

In 1830 J. A. C. Weigel in Leipsic acquires from the Ridinger heirs the bequest of the master’s drawings. After the opinion here additionally working copies of graphic sets, too.

In 1867 + 1873/75 the competitors follow with sets of 84 (recte only 24?) and 70 (recte only 48?) sheets resp. Common to all three undertakings their immense rarity.

In 1900 Helbing at Munich publishes his 1554-item catalog XXXIV, “(Prints and Drawings by J. E. and M. E. Ridinger)”.

In 1903 Baron von Gutmann at Vienna acquires the rich Ridinger collection of Josef Horn.

And the indispensible addition beside Thienemann and far beyond him.

Available here the baron’s own no. I !

In 1913 Franz Marc presents his woodcut “Riding Scenery after Ridinger” (Lankheit 839) for what he used the already mounted rider of the 3rd sheet from Ridinger’s earliest school, his “New Horsemanship” of 1722 (Thienemann 608). It is the year of the “Tower of the Blue Horses” as one of the icons of modernity, “the richest (year) in the artistic work of Franz Marc” (Christian von Holst). And together with the coincident woodcut “Lion Hunting after Delacroix” the work stands for that moment of which “one may speak of a literal coming of the rider in the œuvre of Marc … The animalization of the art (aspired again and again) by Marc by an abstracting sympathetic understanding in the horse and the others of the animal world … now tipps over repeatedly in the revival of unity of horse and rider … In 1912 he himself presents in a postcard to Else Lasker-Schüler as “Blue Rider” standing next to and behind resp. his horse blending with him to a unity (from the point of view here an anticipation to the “powerfully rhythmic depiction” of the “Ridinger Scenery after Ridinger”) … The hound below right (on the latter) reminding the onlooker rather of a hunting scene is owing … to the ‘New Horsemanship’ by Ridinger, too (cf. the corresponding hounds on the sheets 5, 18 and 22). He looks back as if he would wish to see where his master, the rider, remains. An atmosphere of start full of suspense sets the tone of determine turning Ridinger’s background figure of the rider into the real protagonist. In their extreme impulse of motion the rider and the horse form a unity. Though Marc quotes with Ridinger a specialist of the trained horse it doesn’t go for him for an artificial symbiosis of man-animal articulated especially in the training of the horse in the artificial pace” (Andreas Schalhorn). And “Instructively that Marc at his very familiar acquaintance with art history turns just to these masters of horse depiction (Delacroix and Ridinger) of the 19th and 20th centuries resp. as models ” (von Holst[8]). The par force scenery on the watercolor “Ried Castle” – Holst, ills. 11 – worked one year later stands as further example for the occupation with Ridinger.

In 1951 Sotheby’s London sells the legendary Ribblesdale Folios, see above, as with about 900 sheets possibly the most extensive among the small group of highly carated contemporary albums.

In 1958 Karl & Faber at Munich sell the rich Ridinger collection of the Counts of Faber-Castell. Included that 95-sheet corpus of drawings whose one (of three) rhinoceros will be catapulted at Sotheby’s London in 1991 – see there – from 2-3000 to 20000 £.

Stubbe, Wolf. Johann Elias Ridinger. 1966. – Regarding Ridinger’s one of the more seldom art-historical voices (1933-1969 Hamburg Art Hall, “standing out as authority on graphics. Under his direction the print room collection grew … to one of the most substantial and voluminous among the German museums … his special interest was directed in addition to the old master graphics of both the 18th/19th centuries as the 20th, too, where his unconventional sight opened new terrain, leading in 1963 to the decisive publication ‘Graphik des 20. Jahrhunderts’ …”, Ernst Nolte in June 2000 on occasion of the auction of a portion of his collection, H & N 348, p. 6). Corresponding to that here then an essential contribution to the art-historical opening of Ridinger’s artist’s personality, examined in the light of the hunting/animal graphics with the result of both technical bravery and scenically quite remarkable further development, on which latter merits Ernst Welisch as presumable the first had called attention to, see per 1901. – Horst Janssen’s etched greeting to Stubbe’s 85th “[Backhuizen greets Stubbe / to 7th 6th 1988 Dear old friend Wolf Stubbe – today I do not have any appetite for A(ntonie). Waterloo – but this heartily]”.

In 1976 Sotheby’s Amsterdam sells at auction Ridinger’s quite spectacular self-portrait with death made in the year of his death mentioned by Thienemann p. XXI, no. 4 as being in the Weigel collection, but missing already in the 1869 Weigel catalog of the left drawings. – Ridinger Catalog Darmstadt, 1999, I.5 with color ills. 9 + b/w ills. p. 61. – Now in the Berlin Printroom.

In 1983 Michael Bauer[9] resumes with Ridinger and Nilson (the latter quite contrarily dismissed expressly together with the pack by Kobell, see per 1771) “the two important engravers of (Augsburg) in the last third of the 18th century have died without leaving behind even still almost worthy followers”.

In 1987 Rolf Biedermann[10] qualifies Ridinger as “one of the few German Baroque artists … who since his death … never fell into oblivion, whose animal and hunt depictions are highly coveted by collectors till today and highly traded by dealers, so (that) the limited attention surprises the science of art has shown towards him so far”.

In 1991 Sotheby’s London catapults at auction Ridinger’s preparatory drawing to the rhinoceros Thienemann 295 from 2-3000 £ to 20000 £. – See to this above per 1958. – Now in the Ratjen Foundation Vaduz.
