There are light moments as well, of family fun, irreverence, pleasure and warmth .

        Kreuzritterburg von Otranto.

      . Bleistift, auf cremefarbenem Pauspapier. 21,5:29,4 cm. Kleiner Einriß im Unterrand, kleines Löchlein im Himmel links oben. Provenienz: Friedrich August II., König von Sachsen, Lugt 971. Vergleichsliteratur: Ausst. Katalog: Von Dillis bis Piloty, München 1979, S. 74, vgl. Abb. 43-45; Kat. H.W. Fichter, Gezeichnete Kunst, Bd. 4, 1990, Nr. 37 sowie Bd. 9, 1995, Nr. 53; Joseph Fach, 2001, Kat. 80, Nr. 56. Zeichnungen auf Pauspapier fertigte Reinhold meist als Vorarbeiten für Gemälde an. Diese in der Regel vor der Natur entstandenen Studien verkaufte er allerdings nur, wenn ihn Geldnöte dazu zwangen. Bei der hier vorliegende Zeichnung kann es sich allerdings nicht um eine vor Ort entstandene Zeichnung handeln, da Reinhold selbst nie in Otranto gewesen ist. Vermutlich ist sie die Pause einer Zeichnung von J. Thürmer (1789-1833), der 1818 auf dem Weg nach Griechenland in Otranto auf das Schiff wartete, mit dem er die Reise fortsetzen konnte. In seiner Begleitung fanden sich damals seine Freunde und Kollegen F. Heger (1792-1836) und H. Hübsch (1795-1863).. Ersten Unterricht erhielt Reinhold an der Dresdener Akademie. 1807 übersiedelte er zu seinem Bruder und Förderer Friedrich Philipp Reinhold (1779-1848) nach Wien, wo er bis 1809 die Akademie besuchte. Ein Aufenthalt in Paris folgte von 1809-1814, danach wohnte er wieder in Wien. Hier begegnete ihm J.A. Koch (1768-1839) und er verkehrte im Kreise von Fr. Olivier (1791-1859). Nach einer Reise mit E. Welker (1788-1857) und J.Chr. Erhard (1795-1822) zum Schneeberg bei Wien unternahm er mit seinem Bruder Friedrich Philipp und den bereits oben erwähnten Malerfreunden im gleichen Jahr eine längere Studienreise nach Salzburg und in das Berchtesgadener Land. 1819 ging er mit Erhard nach Rom und verbrachte in den Jahren 1821, 1822 und 1824 die Sommermonate in Olevano. 1824 lernte er in Rom K.F. Schinkel (1781-1841) kennen, der Landschaftsstudien von ihm erwarb. Reinhold war vor allem Landschaftszeichner, malte aber seit 1816 auch in Öl. Er pflegte engen Kontakt zu J.J. Faber (1778-1846) J. Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1794-1872), C.W. Götzloff (1799-1866), A.L. Richter (1803-1884), J.H. Schilbach (1798-1851) u. a.

        The Book of Jonah. Together with Thirteen Wood Engravings by David Jones for The Book of Jonah

      London: Clover Hill Editions, 1979. Quarto. 19pp. One of 300 copies of the ordinary edition, printed on J. Green mould-made paper by Will Carter at the Rampant Lions Press. The portfolio of loose engravings is one of sixty sets printed on Japon. Illustrated with thirteen wood engravings by David Jones, several of which frame the text. Jones was encouraged by Eric Gill to learn the craft of wood engraving, and although one can see the influence of Gill's work in these illustrations, they also reveal a sense of darkness and tumult that is distinctly Jones's own. The first edition was published by the Golden Cockerel Press in 1926; the new edition was printed using Jones's original blocks. The engravings in this portfolio are printed on the same paper as the extra suites in the deluxe and vellum copies of the 1979 reprint, and are untrimmed and therefore slightly larger than the prints included in those suites. The book is very fine in the publisher's binding of cloth-backed patterned paper-covered boards and a clear mylar dust wrapper. Engravings fine in a printed tan card folder.

        Cleopatra und Meleager. Cleopatra perfuading Meleager to take his Arms in defence of his country.

      - Kupferstich in Punktiermanier, in mehreren Farben, von Ruhot, auf Bütten. 32:37,4 cm. Auf die Plattenkante geschnitten, im Schriftrand unten dünne Papierstelle, verso Reste alter Leimspuren. Literatur: Gerard vgl. 48; Boerner 1979, vgl. aus 72; Manners-Williamson vgl. S. 223. Illustration zu Plutarch, Leben des Aemilius sowie Homer, Ilias. Angelika Kauffmann war eine der berühmtesten Malerinnen ihrer Zeit. Bereits als 11jährige galt sie als Wunderkind. Als Tochter des Porträt- und Freskenmalers J.J. Kauffmann (1702-1782), der ihr erster Lehrer war, wurde Kauffmanns zeichnerisches und musikalisches Talent schon im Kindesalter erkannt und gefördert. Die beiden ersten Italienaufenthalte in den Jahren 1754-1757 und 1758-1766 brachten entscheidende künstlerische Impulse sowie die Verbindung zu zahlreichen potenziellen Auftraggebern. 1766 ließ sie sich in England nieder, wo sie zahlreiche Porträtaufträge von Hof und Adel erhielt. Nach der Heirat mit dem Maler A. Zucchi (1726-1795) siedelte sie 1782 nach Rom über, wo sie ebenfalls bald zu einer der gefeiertsten Künstlerinnen ihrer Zeit avancierte. Auch für die deutschen Romreisenden war ihr Atelier eine wichtiger Treffpunkt, insbesondere für den Weimarer Kreis um Goethe, Herder, die sie beide porträtierte, und Herzogin Anna Amalia von Sachsen-Weimar. Neben ihrer Porträttätigkeit betrieb Angelika Kauffmann ebenso erfolgreich die Historienmalerei. So führte sie Aufträge u.a. für Kaiser Joseph II. und für das russische Herrscherhaus aus. Bereits 1762 wurde sie Ehrenmitglied der Accademia Bologna und 1765 ordentliches Mitglied der Accademia di San Luca zu Rom. Zudem beteiligte sie sich 1768 an der Gründung der Royal Academy; gemeinsam mit Mary Moser (1744-1819), einer der berühmtesten Malerinnen Englands, gehörte sie zu deren einzigen weiblichen Mitgliedern.
