Weather is worsening in Europe my internet router has been replaced 8 times in 7 years, and needs to be replaced again. However, the largest labor strike since 1968 is still on in mid-December, less than 10% of public transport for the entire country was working; 75% of the Paris Metro was shut down.

I live alone at 3,000 ft. Altitude in one of the most isolated places in Western Europe, 2 hours by car to any city. Postal distribution is by truck work strikes or severe weather have major effects: internet or computer problems take a week to correct.

Negotiations between labor unions & the government continue, but Elly's listings physically located in France have a 10 working-day delay instead of the usual 5, until the massive dispute (over retirement age & benefits) is resolved; delays are out of our control. In November of 2017, the art world and much wider international media was set abuzz with the news of Leonardo da Vincis. What is less discussed, and generally unknown is that the portraiture of Jesus as SALVATOR MUNDI (the worlds savior) was a favorite of numerous Old Masters , and as late as the mid-18.

Century; many other important versions exist. The City of Limoges has been the most famous Continental source of enamel on copper production for 900 years protected by royal patronage, the Mannerism peak of French Renaissance work was achieved in the mid to late 16. Century, and carried on by the Laudin family into the 17.

Signature is that as seen on this extremely rare SALVATOR MUNDI portrait plaque. If you download and zoom in on the details of the face of Jesus, why Laudin was considered to be the Master of 17. Century Limoges will become obvious the quality of his work in such a small medium is truly phenomenal. The first photo of the plaque in its frame is how it arrived the frame is old, probably early to mid-19.

Century, and custom-made for the plaque (the finely fitted liner is brass), but clearly not original. The paper label on the enameled back is old, but erroneous as to date (1632) circa 1670 would be more accurate.

Unfortunately, the frame was made of a single piece of soft wood, perhaps fir, and has warped, left to right. A very fine hairline fracture in the enamel was visible before I removed the plaque, which resulted in it splitting across the signature (despite extensive and cushioned clamping of the frame). The last photo features another enameled Limoges Renaissance masterpiece - a signed & dated (1552) candlestick with double-acorn knopped balusters, and the Arms of France on the foot rim (confirmed as period - I have decided to keep it). The larger portrait to the left in the group photo is a repoussé. Silvered sheet iron French Old Master portrait plaque of Ferdinand III. The Holy Roman Emperor and king of Austria, wearing the Order of the Golden Fleece. This is one of only 3 known portrait plaques attributable to Dupré; another is in the Metropolitan Museum. Additionally, it has a highly important provenance, in coming from the mind-boggling Collection de Mme Henry Haass , an 1889 Paris charity exhibition & sale, the catalog for which reads like a Whos Who of Old Masters (including both da Vinci & Michelangelo) and the portrait of Ferdinand III is illustrated in it. I wish to thank The Watson Library of The Metropolitan Museum in New York for providing me with 3 pages of high-resolutions scans from the 1889 catalog - their example is only one of three recorded survivors of the catalog.
