La Noblesse

61.5 x 43 cm (24 x 17 inches).

Nobility: a *caryatid in a knee-high garment, holding a globe upon which stands Victory.

This is a large engraving with etching, made in Paris in 1690 by Gerard Audran. This engraving is of a figure painted by Raphael of Urbino in the Room of Heliodorus in the Vatican.

It was made on heavy weight chain-linked paper made from cotton. The engraving is on one side, the other side is blank. The print is blind stamped "Musees du Louvre". This is a genuine antique print, not a reproduction. It is in very good condition.

* a caryatid is a sculpted female figure serving as architectural support in the place of a column or a pillar.
