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.
