In addition to commemorating their patrons, some sixteenth-century artists nurtured their own fame, which in turn added prestige to their collectors’ holdings. Daucher, for example, signed many of his works; here, a monogram acknowledges his design. Though celebrated in his lifetime, Daucher enjoys hardly a fraction of the fame of his contemporary Albrecht Dürer. The latter artist’s prints traveled and, made in multiples, endured; Daucher’s more expensive media—mostly bronze and limestone—and limited, if often elite, clientele tended to prevent his work from circulating far beyond the place and time for which it was made.
