200 Years Augsburg Artist Dynasty
GEORG PHILIPP RUGENDAS I
1666 Augsburg 1742
JOHANN MORITZ RUGENDAS
Augsburg 1802 – Weilheim/Teck 1858
Since for one of the best addresses worldwide, maybe the most experienced at all,
for the many-fold work of Johann Elias Ridinger the artistic surroundings
– the influencing predecessors as the influenced successors –
are naturally part of it.
Of course you will find Rugendas among the publications of the ridinger gallery, too.
“ … I was digging and I found you. I needed to tell you that your collection for whatever reason has brought tears to my eyes. Thank you … I’m not a collector, or I haven’t known myself to be … I was going to sell this (sheet), but I just may have discovered that I’m to keep this for whatever reason. Have you made a collector out of me … For all your devotion, hardwork … I thank you ”
