[Alexander and Hephaistion Visit the Family of Darius in their Tent after the Battle of Issus.]
[Alexander and Hephaistion Visit the Family of Darius in their Tent after the Battle of Issus.]
C. le Brun Pinxit, G. Edelinck Sculpsit.
[n.d, 1675.]
Rare engraving. On two sheets, 640 x 420 (25¼ x 16½") & 640 x 520mm (25¼ x 20½"). Trimmed at bottom, losing dedication, title and publisher's address.
Sisygambis, mother of Darius III, prostrates herself before Hephaestion, mistaking him for Alexander. Instead of flying into a rage, Alexander dismisses this error as of no importance and puts the family under his protection. Prints of this size were unusual during this period, due to expense. This engraving of a painting belonging to Louis XIV was published as a propaganda piece, lauding the magnificence of royalty. Gérard Edelinck, the engraver, has also chosen to make dividing line jagged, so the join would disappear in the darkest parts of the image. The original oil, painted c.1660, is still at Versailles.

De Largilliere Pinxit. Edelinck Sculpsit Cum Pr. Regis 1692.
Engraving, sheet 430 x 315mm (17¼ x 12¾"). Trimmed within plate; repaired vertical fold; hardly visible from front.
James Francis Edward Stuart, the 'Old Pretender' (1688-1766), Jacobite claimant to the thrones of England, Scotland and Ireland, in the feminine dress style of the period, wearing a feathered hat and Garter. As the son of James II, his birth raised the prospect of a catholic succession and so sparked the 'Glorious Revolution' that forced his father into exile. James was raised in the court of his exiled father at Saint Germain-en-Laye in France (hence the French artist and printmaker responsible for this print). As James III of England and Ireland and James VIII of Scotland, he claimed the English, Scottish and Irish thrones from the death of his father in 1701, when he was proclaimed king of England, Scotland and Ireland by his cousin Louis XIV of France. Following his death in 1766 he was succeeded by his son Charles Edward Stuart in the Jacobite Succession. Engraved by French printmaker Gérard Edelinck (1640-1707), a specialist in portraits who reproduced many works by artists such as Hyacinthe Rigaud and Nicolas de Largillière, and is considered one of the greatest engravers of the 17th century. This portrait was by Largillière, who worked in London before returning to Paris to flee anti-Catholic persecution in England. He also painted James II and his wife Mary of Modena.
