JOSEPH GEORG WINTTER
1751 Munich 1789

Electoral Palatinate Bavarian
Court and Hunting Engraver

whose delicate and sophisticated drawings and watercolors
— more numerous than his only just about 137 mostly smaller etchings —

need great experience .

The contemporary Wilhelm Gottfried von Moser 1788 about Wintter :

“ The drawing is fine, and the engraving well ,
always better than Riedinger’s (sic!) ”

(Forst-Archiv vol. IV).

And 1851 Dr. G. K. Nagler wrote in his Künstler-Lexicon :

“ Winter appears in these drawings in a very advantageous way ,
since they are done quite as beautifully as witty .
His etchings are excellent, too ,
and stand in their treatment between those by Hollar and Riedinger (sic!) . ”
