Description

Artist - Hubert Goltzius

Title - D N Leonti Us Perpet Aug

Details - Leontios was Roman Emperor from 695 until he was executed in 698. We believe this rare woodcut to be an original from Goltzius' book published in various different languages between 1557 and 1560, Vivae Omnium Fere Imperatorum Imagines, a C. Iulio Caes. Usque a Carolum V et Ferdinandum eius Fratrem. This is from the French version, published in 1559. Goltzius' book was one of the first uses of the chiaroscuro technique in book form, and this portrait is striking in tones of brown with white highlights. We believe the portrait to be based on a coin from the period. The full page of the book is retained, but is folded at the bottom. There is French text on the reverse of the page. The woodcut has been professionally mounted and framed in a modern frame.
