Description
For much of the 17th and 18th centuries the Dassier family of Geneva minted exquisite portrait medallions from precious metals, utilizing skills and innovations that elevated the art form. Their medallions are seen in close-up in this book's 85 color photographs, revealing the Dassiers' passion for compelling portraiture and realistic details. Among the historical figures represented are Isaac Newton, William Shakespeare, John Milton, and Queen Elizabeth I, along with a host of historical and mythological scenes. The appendix contains black and white depictions of all 359 medallions attributed to the Dassiers.
