Pair of medallions representing Agrippina and Faustina, Rome, early 17th century.
Yellow marble and onyx.
The representation, inspired by antiquity, must be placed in this profane and festive production of figures of the classical and allegorical nature of their virtues, linked to this cultured and refined collection which flourished in the humanist culture of the Renaissance and was also prevalent in the Baroque era.
Of refined manufacture, the small size, the precious materials and the extreme quality place them in the very beginning of the 17th century, very close to the productions of the Renaissance.
On the back of the old inscriptions designate them as the portraits of Agrippina and Faustina. Agrippina and Faustina are both Roman empresses, mothers of Nero and Commodus respectively.
The rarity of these objects on the art market has given rise to a large production of counterfeits. The medallions are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
