Footnotes

  • Several renowned enamel workshops of the 16th and 17th centuries produced plaques based on Marcantonio Raimondi's engravings of Les Douze Césars,
    including those of Jean II Pénicaud and Pierre Courteys. For a discussion on these 16th century plaques and their likely attributions please see V. Notin La Recontre des Heros, Musee Municipal de L'eve che Limoges, 2002, Limoges, 166-177, and Bautier Le theme des douze Cesars dan les emaux peints de Limoges XVI, BSAHL, 64-195.
