Overview

This volume presents one of the most important private collections worldwide of Renaissance medals from the time of Albrecht Duerer. The medals provide a fascinating glimpse into the era of the Protestant reformation. The portraits on these medals show emperors, princes, merchants and reformers, and their execution is comparable in style and artistry to the paintings of Duerer, Cranach, and Holbein. Profusely illustrated and accompanied by descriptions and biographies of the depicted medals.
