[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.
