Ritter had been taught at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts in the years 1829-1834 in the history painting. The first painting, with whom he participated in an academy exhibition (1830, no. 235), was, however, no historical or mythological scene as it could be provided for a student of this subject, but a self-portrait. The stay of this painting is unknown today, but the portrait shown here can a young man, which was created five years later, to give an impression of high artistic level that the young painter had already reached in the 1830s. What is unusual about this depiction is the perspective, because in the foreground the small tables can be seen, only behind the portrayed sitting. Through this game with the optical illusion and the hand shown in excellent shortening that moreover leafing through natural movement in a book, Ritter documented an artistic level, could make the few artists of his time claimed for itself. A suggestion for the space-creating "set piece" in the foreground may be found in the paintings of Gerard Dou (1613-1675), who could know our painters from the Imperial Collection in the Upper Belvedere (today Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna). Perhaps the "referee" (1529, Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna, Inv 783) inspired him by Barthel Beham (1502 to 1540) d or portraits of Hans Holbein. J. (1497-1543), which were available as reproductions. These possible models, however, were very independently implemented in this image and timely adapted. The figure in its overall appearance conveys a unique proximity to life, for instance through the open features, the intelligent-questioning look, the soft molded lips and the relaxed-looking posture. This impression is reinforced by the clear, fresh colors and a painting technique that using fine but easily applied shades modeled the body gently. Unusual is also the folded-back tablecloth by which the attached to the quill of the painter signature becomes visible. [Sabine Grabner, in: Grabner, Sabine: More than Biedermeier.
