Lotter was a German engraver and publisher from Augsburg. He worked with his father-in-law, Georg Matthaeus Seutter who he succeeded him in 1756. After inheriting half the copper plates from Seutter, he set up his own publishing house in 1758. He was succeeded by his brother Andreas, his sons Matthaeus Albrecht, Georg Friedrich the elder and Gustav Conrad, and his grandsons Gabriel and Georg Friedrich the younger.
