« … always better than Riedinger »
Wilhelm Gottfried von Moser , forest cameralist , b. 1729 ,
per Forstarchiv 1788 , vol. IV , pp. 280 ff.
Of the Tender Charm of the Coarse Boar
in marvelous impression supposedly before the letter
Etching. 1784? 3⅞ × 5⅞ in (9.9 × 14.8 cm). – Niemeyer 57. – Cannot be related in Nagler if not belonging to his omnibus number 21. – Already not present anymore in the posthumous omnibus edition of 1821 the earliest.
Sponsor to this graphically quite delicate sheet should have been Ridinger’s The Bear frightened of 1738 (Th. 432, see below), yet
what an “ easiness of being ” here !
By composition besides related to his larger “Wild Boar at the Tree” (Niemeyer 28; Nagler 8, 3) of 1784. So then also inscribed in pencil by a previous owner “J. G. Wintter 1784 sc.” as well as “Cat. No. 1299” by further old hand. – On wide-margined light laid paper with torso of a typographic/figurative watermark. n the upper right white plate field and paper margin resp. four quite faint brown spots, otherwise impeccable.
“ Always better than Riedinger ” , Wintter found himself qualified already in his lifetime by the pope of forest cameralists Wilhelm Gottfried von Moser from the “famous family of cameralists” [Heß in Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie] 1788 in Forst-Archiv [IV, 280 ff.] as being born 1729 one of the important voices of the fathers’ generation, after Lorenz von Westenrieder of the same age (b. 1748, theologian, yet especially historian; “has generally an impressionable eye for scenic beauties” [Höhn]) had already praised him highly in his 1783 “Almanac of Human History in Bavaria”, only to write in 1785 to Christian Felix Weisse, friend of Lessing’s and playwright in Leipsic:
“ This man has extraordinary talents .”
Finding its expression ultimately in the statement of Thieme-Becker XXXVI (1947), 79 f.
“ Next Ridinger the best German depictor of the hunt of the 18th century ”
after yet already 1909 and 1921 resp. Höhn (Studies on the Development of Munich Landscape Painting from the End of the 18th and the Early 19th Centuries: “one of the earliest“ among “the early beginnings of Munich landscape painting”) and Wolf (The Discovery of the Munich Landscape, illustrating seven of his etchings) resp. had put him into starting holes unrelated to the hunt.
Present work once more belonging to the hunt, though a sidetrack, in such a manner speaking for itself. And at the same time confirming also in this regard Nagler’s note of 1851 in the Künstler-Lexicon, according to which he
“ yet preferred … to do his studies in the hunting ground ” itself .
And, continuing, his “etchings are excellent and are in the treatment between those by Hollar and Riedinger”. To eventually emphasize 1863 once again expressly in the Dictionary of Monogramists (III, no. 68) the rarity of these beautiful sheets. Sundry of them then today & here.

Yet back to “ Wintter ex Monachi ” …
Drawn – Cut Up – Pasted In – Saved
Looked behind the Master’s Scenes
Stag of eight points, standing to the left. Pencil drawing. Inscribed: JW (ligated) inv. 17(81, pasted over by a side-strip) + (pasted over by a substrip) JGW (ligated) inv 1781. 9 × 7¼ in (230 × 184 mm).
Stag of ten points, standing from front left. Pen drawing. Inscribed: JGW (ligated) inv 1781 / JGW. (ligated) inv 1781 + (pasted over by an upper strip) “Nach Natur gezeichnet von JGWintter den 28 august ao. 1783” (Drawn from Nature by … ). 8⅜ × 7⅞ in (213 × 201 mm).
Biting Horses, driven apart by the groom. Stallion in vivacious movement to the left, biting a half covered second one into the crest while this takes his revenge by a bite into the forehand. Hurrying from the right the groom with the whip. Chalk and pencil drawing, the richly hatched attacking stallion additionally executed in black pen. (Before) 1781. 10½ × 15¼ in (268 × 387 mm).
drawings of all schools & epochs , Japanese woodcuts
with his red mark “G” in square (Lugt 3985) lower left
Three Very Finely Executed Drawings on One Sheet , recto & verso. – On the front seven points of previous corner mounting of the stag studies on the reverse, four of them still with vestiges of the grey-blue mounting paper. Only one of these spots though unessentially affecting the drawing by touching the groom’s foot. Lower centre below the shadow hatching thin paper spot from almost imperceptibly removed eighth mounting point.
By Winter cut up vertically in about the centre by Wintter for the two backside stag studies. These two halves additionally – obviously for reason of proportion – shortened at the top and bottom resp. and mounted in an album. Assumedly Wintter himself removed them after 1783 (see below) and glued them together again with strips of laid paper, adding the missing parts, though not concerning the drawing of the horses, by strips from further studies – tops of antlers and torso of a stag lying beside a trunk from behind resp. One of the laid paper strips besides with the covered German inscription
“ Drawn from nature by JGWintter the 28 august ao. 1783 ”.
The differing arrangement of the replacement strips – upper left, lower right – proving the priority of the horse drawing. The use of further study sheets up to the mentioned strip with the inscription of 1783, a procedure barely chosen by a collector, also indicates Wintter as rescuer of his own drawing. In such a manner yet not only
with respect to the horse scenery
full of the riches of movement & immediate power
but at the same time an unheard of uniquely charming proof
of the ups and downs of artistic work .
And while in the groom we meet again thematically the hunter likewise acting from the right in a bison hunt of 1785 with the provenance von Kühlmann and Schäfer traded here, so the technical condition of the sheet has a predecessor in “Mr. Blaeu makes maps with glue and scissors” (IMAGO MUNDI XVII, 1963, pp. 96 f. & folded plates). Since in 1635 this was behind the competitor Janssonius with both the maps of Rhine + Danube he hastily printed the respective rough parts of Rumold Mercator’s wall-map of Germany of 1590 passed to him, and then reworked these accordingly with scissors and glue. Used so only in the German edition of the atlas of that year a pair of these cimelies has been traded here in the 60s.

As the Big Cats each other
so Wintter has the Knack of them
Panther and Lioness locked in fight. Black chalk over pencil sketching with some red for the inflicted wounds. Inscribed with the chalk lower right: JG(ligated)Wintter inv. 11⅜ × 8⅜ in (288 × 212 mm).
Brilliant , graphically utterly executed study
following Ridinger’s etching
Th. 718 (see 15,449 here), as on its part being in context with the lion-tiger detail of the Berlin Ridinger painting “Beasts of Prey and Killed Stag” (Michaelis, [German Paintings of the 18th Century], 2002, no. 2272) with its couples of tiger and lion fighting for the prey (detail) and spitting at each other resp.
While in the painting the lion has the upper and in the engraving the position of the lioness not yet appears as hopeless, so with Wintter her fate is practically decided. Just as here the two of them are entangled, rather, how the panther has the knack of the lioness on the right
the scene to incredible dynamics
not least by his limitation to just the fight. And nothing else.
And how only so setting the feline agility of both the opponents. Correspondingly matchlessly varied also the position of the hindlegs of the lioness with their stretching imparting to the body! How here still the last claw conveys the utmost strain indeed reminds of Moser’s said, not generally agreeable,
“ always better than Riedinger ”
of 1788 and just von Westenrieder’s of 1785
“ This man has extraordinary talents ”
In such a manner then, too,
the bodies converged here , having become one without example
something utterly new has been created .
Up to the now smoldering predatory look aiming at the beholder .
With mostly still fine(st) margin around the borderline. Three tears 15-25 mm deep in the right margin, one of which marginally still extending into the boulder hatching, settled by vélin mounting. The unessential age spotting otherwise perceptible in the white field as patina addition rather even enhancing the effect of this drawing.

THE SUITE DESCRIBABLE HERE FOR THE FIRST TIME
after in the catalogue raisonné here based on two separate parts in the trade only vaguely “4 sheet with depictions of cows from 1824” and “5 sheet with depictions of goats and sheep” resp. could be recorded. Here then both groups of six sheet each and in such a manner supposedly complete. – Not least due to the soft chalk manner
PAINTERLY FINE WORKS
of the animals pictured in again and again new position and grouping in variedly rich environment in their lively naturalness, thereby only once together with man where on a mountain plateau a shepherd with a lamb in his arm chats with the resting shepherdess while a ram visibly intelligently contributes his opinion. Very charming, too, the second one of the two largest sheets in which one of the two billy-goats stretches up at a tree for feed, observed by resting sheep.
In all this Raphael follows his very own talent :
“ devoted himself with preference to animal painting … also occupied himself … with lithography … his drawings (are) quite numerous. They are held in just as high esteem by the connoisseurs as his etchings. Also ingenious lithographic sheets of him are to be found ”
1809 he became 1st lithographer and later inspector at the Lithographic Institute of the Royal Privy Council established by his stepfather and first teacher Mettenleiter. Most interestingly his throughout rare and very rare sets all originate from the early decades with 1831/32 as the last dates for such two etched “Animal Studies” as a result of a stay in Italy in 1830. To add to this yet only scant series now here & now one from the ending “incunabula age” of lithography which until now escaped both literature and surveyable trade and thereby being able to integrate above stray nine individual sheets from it, is pleasure + satisfaction at once. And may be understood as invitation
to snatch as collection-enhancing what pure chance presented .

« To whom art is life ,
whose life is a great art »
Johann Sebastian Bach
Also in its contents of extraordinary dimension the proposed setting-up of an
Deer Hunt Park
not far from Munich ”
Maximilian II Emanuel Elector of Bavaria (1662-1726, accession to the throne 1680)
on the comprehensive improvement
of the game stock and the hunt in Bavaria .
Given in Our capital and residence city of Munich the 28th day of the month May / in the 1717th year. No place & printer (1717). Imperial folio (24 × 16½ in [61 × 42 cm]). 1 page. With large woodcut initial and wafer seal. – In German. – State Library Munich 2° Bavar. 960, VIII, 77.
Marvelously large-sized + decorative
broadsheet of greatest freshness
composed of two joined parts
due to the negligible multiple folding and untrimmed wide margins with contemporary publication note (July 7, 1717) on the back. With larger and smaller watermark.
Historically first of all interesting the reference to the electoral interregnum of 1709-1715: “… that the hunting system, ruined and come into decrease in the whole country during Our absence as everybody knows, shall be raised again and restored as much as possible …”.
Then in 14 chapters the means to achieve this ,
starting with a prohibition of two and one year resp. “to hunt and stalk / for red deer / and wild boar” also in the own grounds. Therefore “and to spare the hunting districts in the country / (he had)
established a park next to Munich
where We take Our pleasure / without that elsewhere the hunting grounds would be passed through / and the game chased away”. Which should be the “ELECTORAL Deer Hunting Park not far from Munich, together included Pleasure Seats Nymphenburg and Fürstenried” as drawn by Johann Baptist Tranner in 1734 under Max Emanuel’s successor and engraved by L. Kaufman.
The nobility and gentry holding the hereditary hunting grounds are expected to join this prohibition the more so as “this way by the increasing for their the ranks’ better benefit / interest, and further pleasure / such will be replaced and produced in turn”. Also the “depopulation of the hunting grounds essentially resulted from that / that until now neither with those big hunt nor small hunt / had been paid due heed to the Hunting Orders / and hitherto issued decrees” on which from now on should be kept a serious eye on.
Also “by the shot-guns a lot has been shot to pieces / and the game much thinned out” so that “the use of the shot-guns at all small and winged game … shall be abolished / and prohibited throughout, except / a considerable supply for our court kitchen … had been ordered especially”. Excepted likewise and including their agents, however, those “other inconspicuous persons … who / by virtue of the declared sovereignty / and hitherto hunting decrees / are granted the small hunt on their estates / or otherwise to execute”.
The gauntlet is flung down to “all so-called Bassets-Chiens-Courants and Billbotten dogs / as by these the game is chased off / and almost completely exterminated”. The use of “cover or night net” is also forbidden as far as has not been expressly granted as in the circuit Aichach.
“Absolutely and completely abolished / and seriously prohibited” the hunt is with reference to the existing General Prohibition up to the decree of April 17, 1717, for “our civil servants / their clerks / as well as also … clergymen / (who are not permitted the small hunt at all) also citizens / and other common unconditioned people / why, even myrmidons and knackers”.
Special prohibition attention finally directed at the targets “put up almost all over the country at those parish farms and inns … at pleasure” as a special animation of especially mentioned circles, the putting up of which except for towns and fairs is granted only to the gentlemen and nobility for recreation and exercise on the own estate anymore.
Finally the wood beneficiaries are encouraged to keep to the forest order included in the country statutes. – As said, both by its content and optically a
broadsheet quite out of the ordinary
of the inevitably particular enormous rarity of these wearing items. Issued finally even by that prince whose Alexander admiration should have inspired the young Ridinger for his Alexander set. See on this issue 15 – Alexander the Great 326 at the Hyphasis / Punjab – , pp. 11-15 of the ridinger publications here as well as “The Minimized Ridinger”.
