Johann Elias Ridinger (1698 - 1767) was a German painter, engraver, draughtsman and publisher. He is considered one of the most famous German engravers of animals, particularly horses, hounds and hunting scenes. He began his training in Ulm and later studied in Augsburg. He learned the art of engraving from Georg Philipp Rugendas. His engraved, etched and scratched sheets show the animals in characteristic movements and positions in a landscape environment. He later founded his own art publishing house in Augsburg, where most of his works appeared.
