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

Intact, 22 x 15 mm (3/4 x 6/10"); 13.2 gm.

Ex: Chicago private collection of Mr. A.C., acquired on the Paris market, late 1980s – early 1990s.
