On the left forest scenery, on the right view over woody heights. Colored chalk lithograph glazed with albumen and heightened with white by C. F. Herms for J. G. Schwab, Hannover. C. 1830. Inscribed: J. E. Ridinger del. / in der lithogr. Anstalt v. J. G. Schwab in Hannover. / auf Stein gez. C. F. Herms., otherwise in German as above. 16⅜ × 18⅞ in (41.6 × 47.9 cm).
Cf. Thienemann 143 + Ridinger Catalog Kielce, 1997, 53 with ills. – Quite essentially enlarged representation in reverse of the “Noble Stag” as sheet 5 (11 × 9⅞ in [28 × 25 cm]) of the set of The Fair Game hounded by the Different Kinds of Hounds of 1761, and due to the omitted arc above also appearing far more stretched. – The slight fox stipping on the back just as small traces of creases from the front almost perceptible in the white margin only. Its outermost right top corner torn off. – Here neither for lithographer/publisher nor otherwise provable
extraordinarily rare large decorative sheet of fine colors ,
together proof of the esteem Ridinger received through the centuries and both proving the need for his motifs as enriching the work.
