The canvas is stretched on a hand adzed wooden frame consistent with 18th century woodwork.

It is common practice to overpaint on top of an old antique canvas painting and this may have been the case. However the landscape painting is very good quality  and has been signed by the artist to the front and again on the back of the canvas.

I wonder what lies beneath perhaps an old master's masterpiece??.....

Title  Majestic sculptureof a standing lion attributed to Armand Fagotto glazed finish terracotta circa 1910

  

  

Description

Original heavy majestic sculptureof a standing lion attributed to Armand Fagotto with original rare glazed finish in terracotta circa 1910

 

Armand Fagotto lived and worked mainly in France during the late 19th century and the early 20th century. His sculptures are very recognizable and he has a talent for powerfully sculpting predator animals on rocks. He lets the strength of the animals come to the fore through the use of precise yet flowing lines.

This hand sculpted terracotta although unsigned and may have been a test piece for particular fired glaze colours and how they perform visually on the sculpture. A number of well documented sculptures signed by Fagotto show the same flowing majesty .

Title   Set of four engravings of Roman Emperor medallions in gilt frames after Jegher-Goltzius woodcuts

 


Description

Set of four engraving Antique Roman Emperor coins in gilt frames after Jegher-Goltzius woodcuts of the 17th century. 

Mounted under glass and in gilt frame.

These are reprints of the original chiarusco woodcut (with brown tone) combined with a line etching, on a verge type hand laid paper.

The original print originates from an edition of Hubert Goltzius' 'Icones Imperatorum Romanorum' (this edition is not dated). The first edition of this work was published between 1557 and 1560 in Antwerp by J. Coppens van Diest. Given the appearance of eg. Rudolph II in this edition, some portraits were added after Goltzius' time in later editions. Artists and Engravers: Hubert Goltzius is often credited with etching the portraits. Christoffel Jegher made the woodcuts. Christoffel Jegher (1596-1652/3) was a wood engraver born at Antwerp. He worked for Rubens from 1627 and is probably a pupil of Christoffel van Sichem. Hubert Goltzius (1526-1583) was a Dutch humanist author, antiquarian and numismatist. He was born in Venlo, and studied under Lambert Lombard in Liege and later in Antwerp. He settled in Bruges in 1558 and starts publishing several works on ancient numismatics.
