      • Goltzius - 6 Etchings of Portraits of Holy Roman Emperors
        Feb. 10, 2024

        Goltzius - 6 Etchings of Portraits of Holy Roman Emperors

        Est: $400 - $800

        This round portrait of a Caesar is from Hubert Goltzius's Leendige Bilder Garnach Aller Keysern. The work was published in Antwerp in 1557 by Gillis Coppens van Diest. This is from the rare first German edition of the book. Each image of a Roman or Holy Roman Emperor is colored in sepia using the chiaroscuro printing technique. Chiaroscuro is the process used to print the portraits using wood blocks and etching to create an image similar to a hand-colored drawing. The etchings were completed by Joos Gietleughen after Goltzius's original drawings. The work captured the emperors from Julius Caesar to Charles V. Goltzius extensively researched ancient and medieval coins and medals to produce the portraits. Hubert Goltzius (1526-1583) was a Renaissanc painter, engraving, and printer from the Netherlands. This work was eventually published in five languages making him well known in Europe. “For Goltzius’s Imperatorum imagines . . . Gietleughen cut two woodblocks per etched image . . . A darker tone provides the background for the effigy, a lighter tone the flesh-tone and the background for the inscription and the white of the paper the highlights . . . Goltzius’s combination of etching and woodcut and the careful selection of tones yielded images that resembled in color and shape the coins and medals that were his sources. Yet, in their standardized and greatly enlarged size (nearly 18 cm. in diameter), uniform vertical orientation and high degree of completeness, they almost superseded their small referents, which were often degraded, damaged or mutilated.” (Stijnman and Savage, eds., Printing Colour 1400-1700: History, Techniques, Functions and Receptions, pp. 154-155) “The chiaroscuro process, with its different shades of the same hue and white highlights, defines light and tone but not local color; it was thus especially appropriate for the reproduction of monochrome relief medals. One of the characteristics of Goltzius’s work, the use of an etched plate for the black outlines and details, had earlier been invented by Parmagianino, but was not widely adopted by the practitioners of chiaroscuro active in the sixteenth century.” (Friedman, Color Printing in England, no. 2, citing the 1557 Italian edition)

Wurzbach I, 585 (vorliegende) und 620 (lateinische Ausgabe). Belgica Typographica I, 1301. Äußerste seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe dieses Vitenbuches in aufwendigster Illustrationstechnik, für die Buchillustration ungewöhnlich, da die Clair-Obscur-Technik mehrere Holzstöcke erforderte, um die Mehrfarbigkeit und plastische Wirkung zu erzeugen. Die Umrisse sind hier von der Radierplatte gedruckt, die hintergründigen Töne von mehreren Holzstöcken. "Obwohl nicht rein Clair-Obscur, ist diese Benutzung von Tonplatten ein Beweis der Wirkungskraft und der frühzeitigen Kenntnis des Verfahrens in den Niederlanden" (Strauss, Clair-Obscur XI, 232 und Abb. 233). "Dieses Werk verschaffte ihm [Goltzius] den Titel eines Historiographen und Hofmalers Phillipps II." (Thieme-Becker XIV, 353f.). In zeitnaher Original-Federzeichnung mit Aquarell sind dargestellt: Carolus Magnus - Karl III. - sowie ein weiterer unbezeichneter Kaiser. - Papier etwas gebräunt teils auch stockfleckig, die Holzschnitte mit Abklatsch auf der gegenüberliegenden Seite, das letzte Blatt aufgezogen.
