*On verso: study of a dancing girl.

Sometime in the early 19th century a brown ink French inscription written by an anonymous person (collector?) was added to this drawing: "Infanterie Autrichienne" (English: Austrian Infantry). Some time later this title was revised by another text in pencil written underneath: "Cavallerie" (English: cavalry). The latter one is surely accurate, for the soldiers resting in their tent camp are not infantry- but cavalrymen, dragoons, namely from the period of the so-called "Austrian campaign" (Napoleonic wars; spring-summer of 1809). It is likely that this rather peaceful scene took place shortly before the battle of Aspern (21/22 May 1809).

Vinzenz Georg Kininger (1767 Regensburg - 1851 Vienna) was a very well-known Viennese watercolor artist, portrait miniaturist, engraver and lithographer. He came with his parents in 1778 to Vienna and in 1780, at the age of 13, entered the Vienna Academy where he became a pupil of the engraver Professor J. Schmutzer. Kininger was also the most favorite student of the Academy Director H. Fueger, who strongly sponsored him. In 1807 the artist became himself Professor of Mezzotinto Engraving at the Vienna Academy. He was very known as portraitist and illustrator. Especially portraits made him so popular, that he was flooded with commissions from representatives of Vienna aristocracy.
Works by Kininger belong today to collections of the Austrian National Gallery, the Viennese museum "Albertina" and many other important Austrian and international museums.

This is a preparatory drawing for the etching "Lager von K. K. Deutschen Cavallerie", which belonged to the seven-sheet cycle of military scenes printed around 1810 by Edition Tranquillo Mollo, Vienna.
