Set of Six Medallion Portraits of Roman Emperors

  • H: 53 cm (20 7/8")
  • W: 41 cm (16 1/8")

ROMAN EMPERORS IMPERATORUM ROMANORUM VERRISIMAE IMAGINES EX ANTIQUIS NUMISMATIS QUAM FIDELISSIME DELINEATAE. 

Set of six 16th Century woodcut medallion portraits of Roman Emperors, with architectural borders and Latin inscriptions. Zurich, 1559. 

These portraits were designed by Rudolf Manuel Deutsch, a prolific Swiss artist, cut by Rudolf Wyssenback, and printed by Andreas Gessner. Woodcutting is the oldest form of print-making.

This relief process involved carving designs into the surface of a wooden block, the raised areas would then be inked and printed whilst the recessed areas remained blank. 

They are presented in later hand-decorated silver-gilt frames. These would make a stunning feature on a gallery wall and are a great piece of history.
