Ridinger, Johann Elias (Ulm 1698 – Augsburg 1767). Stately 20-points stag in rutting season in reduced posture in open wooded landscape. Set back on the left lattice of a deer park with entrance. Below the picture the detailed life size traces. Etching with engraving. (1740.) Inscribed: 4. / The mark(s) on soft ground are the following … The mark(s) on solid ground … , detailed a-h / Joh. El. Ridinger inv. del. sculps. et excud. Aug. Vind. 14⅝ × 11⅝ in (37 × 29.6 cm).
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.
