Johann Elias Ridinger, Trace of the Red Deer

Compared with the preparatory drawing of 1737 here “instead of the simple lattice with raw laths in the background a stockade from high, sturdy wooden poles. Further the emblematic footprint is replaced by the marks of traces on soft and solid ground” (Sälzle). – Cf. the Coburg “46” Pointer, Th. 1299.

Uniquely beautiful impression with watermark WANGEN as one of the sturdy laid paper qualities preferred by Ridinger. – Margins above & below 3.1-4.8 cm wide, on the left 1.3, on the right 0.2-0.9 cm margin resp., each in addition to the wide white platemark. – The white margin partially somewhat agespotted, below far right a little more from turning over. In addition small tear at the fold of the wide white lower margin backed acid-freely.

„ Ihr Jubiläumskatalog ist, wie überhaupt alle Ihre Kataloge, wieder in jeder Hinsicht anregend. Denn ‚niemeyer’s‘ ist, anders als es Curd Jürgens besang, nicht ‚… 60 Jahre und kein bißchen weise …‘, sondern weise und zugleich mutig genug, sich agenturgestalteter Hochglanzkataloge zu verweigern und stattdessen etwas herauszugeben, das fast schon eine eigene Kunst-Literatur-Gattung darstellt – informativ, unterhaltend, lehrreich, sprachlich prickelnd, angereichert mit (kunst)historischen und aktuellen Zitaten und Bonmots. Es ist ein Erlebnis, darin zu stöbern “
