  • Lunar–Shaped Ring Bezel and Grotesque Figures, ca. 1620–30
    Noël Rouillard (French, 1589–1646)
    Blackwork and engraving; plate 2 9/16 x 2 3/4 in. (6.5 x 7 cm)
    The Harris Brisbane Dick Fund, 1942 (42.40.1[1])

    Although very small, this print has been finely cut by the artist Noël Rouillard. He was the son of a goldsmith, but it is unclear whether he ever actually worked as one himself. He did however publish several print series with designs related to the profession. This print, from a series of twelve, shows a design for a lunar-shaped ring bezel in its center. Rouillard combined this design with several other motifs, such as the fantastical creatures depicted on all four sides of the central ring.
