Johann Jacob Haid

Alles ist eitel, mezzotint by Haid, c. 1750

Johann Jacob Haid or Johann Jakob Haid (1704–1767) was a German engraver who worked in Augsburg.[1]

Haid came from a German family of artists and engravers and was known for large mezzotint portraits.[2]

He worked in England, and it has been suggested that he borrowed from the work of Robert Robinson (c. 1651 – 1706), who was a popular English mezzotint engraver, painter, and stage designer.[3]

Haid also produced botanical work after Bartholomäus Seuter (1678–1754)[4] and with Johann Elias Ridinger, and worked on Johann Wilhelm Weinmann's "Phytanthoza iconographia".
