Ab Christiano Ludovico Hagedorn... J.E. Ridinger pictor ac sculptor augustan

Creator/production credits

The print is dedicated to Christian Ludwig von Hagedorn (1712-1780), the German diplomat, theorist, collector and etcher who served in the Saxon Diplomatic Service and was the Director of the Saxon art collections and schools in Dresden. Hagedorn, under the influence of British theorists, set emotion against rationality as an aesthetic criterion and thus influenced the Sturm und Drang as well as Romanticism
