EXTRAORDINARY CAST GOLD RING FEATURING THE BATTLE AT THE MILVIAN BRIDGE
Exquisitely and minutely detailed in deep three- dimensional relief, the cast is a technical tour de force. The composition is a direct appropriation from a widely circulated and immensely popular print by Gérard Audran, dated 1666, after an unfinished painting by Charles Le Brun (1619–1690).
End of the 17th – beginning of the 18th Century
