Renaissance Medals: Volume Two, France, Germany, The Netherlands, and England
John Graham Pollard with Eleonora Luciano and Maria Pollard
The National Gallery of Art houses the single most important collection of portrait medals in the United States, comprising more than 800 medals, and this two-volume catalog examines these holdings in depth. Providing detailed technical information (including the alloy composition of each medal) drawn from careful research, observation, and analysis, Renaissance Medals breaks new ground in the scholarly literature. Volume Two documents the Gallery's collection of 16th-century German medals; French baroque medals; and a smaller, though no less significant, groups of Netherlandish and English medals.
