Engraving. Plate 285 x 197mm. 11¼ x 7¾". Overall paper toning; backed onto second sheet to stabilise.
Head of Marcus Junius Brutus (85-42BC), one of the conspirators against Julius Caesar, with short hair combed forward, turned to left; from a set of twelve plates showing antique busts after drawings by Rubens. This is one from a series of twelve plates by different printmakers after antique marble portrait sculptures (heads, busts, herms), a project that Rubens completed in 1638 but must have been started much earlier (as one of the engravers, Bolswert, died in 1633). Some of these sculptures may have been part of the antiquities collection of Rubens himself; it is known that Nicolaas Rockox acquired the Demosthenes herm in 1622. The four different engravers were all employed by Rubens in his studio and are Paulus Pontius, Lucas Vorsterman I, Hans Witdoeck and Boëtius Adamsz Bolswert. The production of the prints was closely supervised by Rubens as attested by five retouched proof impressions. Only six of Rubens' preparatory drawings have survived.

Etching with very large margins, sheet 340 x 210mm (13¼ x 8¼").
Phalaris of Acragas (now Agrigento, Sicily). Phalaris was a tyrant renowned for his cruelty. Here he watches a small animal being devoured, while in the background is the infamous brazen bull. This was a bronze bull, hollow, and with a door in one side, used to execute criminals by roasting them to death. Here the sculptor Perillos, who made the device, is put into the device to test it (he was withdrawn before dying, and thrown from the top of a hill instead). Phalaris, however, later met his end inside the brazen bull after he was overthrown by Telemachus. With rococo border and verses in German and Latin below. From a set of decorative prints etched from designs by Johann Esaias Nilson (1721-88), 'the German Watteau'. Nilson was part of a family of artists and established himself as the leading Augsburg artist of his day, whose influence extended across publishing, art academies, a role as court painter, and the decorative arts (especially ceramics).
