The  “imperial”  work  of  1744

by  which  Ridinger  saluted  the  Bavarian  elector  Charles  Albert

on  his  return  to  Munich  in  1744

as  now  Emperor  Charles VII .

By accentuation of the Munich castle Nymphenburg

as  “imperial”  from  now  on

Ridinger paid him his reverence with present etching. Only one year later the glory of these few years oppressive for the emperor as well as for Bavaria and Germany ended by death. But with the etching of 1744

Ridinger  had  entered  himself  into  the  book  of  history .
