Description

Spanning six centuries and seven countries, the Middeldorf Collection—assembled by the late eminent art historian Ulrich Middeldorf—provides an extraordinary overview of major personalities and of political, social, cultural, and religious events as depicted in more than 350 medals and plaquettes. Illustrated in full color and accompanied by extensive documentation are commemorations of kings, queens, emperors, poets, composers, physicians, artists, inventors, popes, cardinals, and bishops. Papal annual and jubilee medals and delightful French reliefs from the Belle Époque complement medals from the eras of Louis XIV and XV, Napoleon, and the Risorgimento. Highlights of the collection are Italian medals from the 17th century and later—periods that until recently have received little scholarly attention.
Published in association with the Indiana University Art Museum
