Abstract :
Discusses the engraver Giovanni Beltrami and the role played by plaquettes in the diffusion of themes from antique and post-classical intaglios and cameos. A mistakenly identified plaquette (Washington DC, National Gallery of Art, Samuel H. Kress collection), is based on an unlocated intaglio by Beltrami, which reproduced a painting by Louis-Rolland Trinquesse dated 1785 (no longer traceable), entitled A Young Woman Getting Into Bed, formerly owned by the art patron Count Giovanni Battista Sommariva. Looks particularly at the use of plaquettes by the Count, who 'advertised' his collection of paintings and sculpture by encouraging the reproduction of his works in gems and enamels, as well as in copies and engravings for critics, connoisseurs and friends. ;
