About

Allegorical print of the Roman emperor Augustus (63-14 BC) helping up a female figure (representing the Arts). Coins spill from his money bag, while on the ground beside the female figure are sheet music, brushes, a palette and a wind instrument. Etching/engraving on hand laid paper. Proof print, before lettering. We have not been able to determine the engraver. Made by an anonymous engraver after Gerard de Lairesse. Gerard de Lairesse (Liege; 1640-1711) was a Belgian Golden Age engraver, painter and art theorist. Painter and etcher. Born at Liege, 1660 to Berlin, 1665 to Amsterdam; moved to The Hague around 1684.
