Lot Essay

This characteristic sheet by Bouchardon is probably a design for a medallion inspired by an antique gem. Bouchardon provided numerous drawings after antique gems for the prints in Pierre-Jean Mariette’s Traité des pierres gravées, published in 1750.

We are grateful to Edouard Kopp for confirming the attribution on the basis of a photograph.
