Portrait to waist of the German artist and engraver Johann Elias Ridinger (1698-1767). Portrait in an oval supported on an engraved stone, beside which is seated the goddess Diana who holds a bow. The spoils from Diana's hunting, which include a stag, a boar and several birds, lie around the portrait; a hound and a hooded bird of prey are seated alongside. Ridinger holds his palette and brushes, the outline of a stag is propped on an easel behind him. The animals and the woodland scene illustrate Ridinger's talent for depicting animals and their characteristics in their natural environment.
