PINZ,, Johann Georg (1697--768)
Plan general de la maison et du jardin de Son Excellence Mr. de Marschall Ministre d'Etat de Sa Majesté Prussienne ... Johann Georg Pinz sculpsit ...
Augsburg, hæred. Jerem. Wolff excud. Aug. Vind.,, [173-?].
7 engr. pl. ; 52.7 cm. (2º)

Title, credit and imprint from pl. 1, the general plan being followed by unsigned front and rear elevations (pl. 2-3), a section (pl. 4), and plans of the basement, ground, and first floors (pl. 5--7). The last six plates are imposed widthways. The Palais von Marschall in Berlin was built to the designs of Philipp Gerlach, 1735--6. These engravings may have been after drawings by C.H. Horst, who collaborated with Gerlach on this and other projects, and who is credited as draughtsman in a similar suite for C.F. Richter's Palais des Grafen Schulenburg-Wolffsburg (q.v.). Berlin Kat. 2124 describes another undated issue of the present work, published in Augsburg by Johann Balthasar Probst (1673--1750).
