Lagrange, who distinguished himself also as a statuary, stands
foremost in the pleiad of French medallists, and his success is well
deserved.

LAING, HENRY (Brit.). Son of the last; was born in London in
1803. At the age of about fourteen he was apprenticed to William
Tassie, under whom he acquired a knowledge of drawing and
modelling, and imbibed that love for art and archaeology which
became the master passion ot his life. He remained some eight
years with Tassie; and then entered into partnership with Daniel
Newton Crouch, a Seal-engraver in London, whose sister he atter-
wards married. About 1829 he settled in Edinburgh as a Gem-
engraver and maker of glass seals which were then in great demand;
and, according to a writer in 'Notes and Queries' for 2) th May
1 86 1, he was accustomed to supply ' block seals, as well as the
enamel casts, and, indeed, everything of the kind which Tassie
either made or sold '. He executed a few medallion-portraits in wax
from the life, among these, one of his wife, modelled about
1826".

H. Laing Junior, who died in 1883, will perhaps best be remem-
bered as the compiler of two volumes of Ancient Scottish Seals,
1850 and 1866.

owes his fame partly to the patronage and encouragement of the
great French actress, M me Sarah Bernhard, who brought his genius



276

and talent before the public notice, by wearing in her various roles
jewels and ornaments specially designed and executed for her by
him. "It was at the "Exposition des Arts de la Femme' ", says a
writer in Magazine of Art, 1903, " that Lalique first revealed him-
self. Thenceforward, by his annual exhibitions at the Salon, he
forced himself upon the minds and the taste of an unsympathetic
public who at first would hardly give him fair consideration, but
whom he conquered by sheer pluck and artistic merit".

"Lalique", continues the same writer, kf is the apostle of the
latest art in one of the most ancient crafts... At the Paris Universal
Exhibition of 1900 the Lilique exhibition was a dream of beauty
and a delight for the eye. 1 recollect spending many hours in admi-
ration, perfectly spellbound under the influence of this unexpected
triumph of colour, a triumph, indeed, of the highest art."




Portrait-medal of M mc Sarah Bernhard, by Lalique.

' Lalique differs greatly from most of his followers, since,
although an artist born, he is also a most careful craftsman. Far
trom despising gems, he uses them lavishly when they suit his
scheme of colour, and he uses them, not because they are expen-
sive, but although they are expensive. Yet he will set richly a worth-
less matrix of opal, and carve a dancing girl in a piece of wood
ot no intrinsic value whatever. No material is too common if it is
beautiful, none is too rich if it suits his purpose, and he knows no
limit but harmony of colour and proportion. "

Among the articles of pure jewellery design by Rene Lalique,
many are based on the glyptic art. " Ornament workers in all ages "
says M. Roger Marx (Studio, Vol. 15, p. 22)" have willingly
undertaken to act as medallists, in the course of their mission as
embellishers of materials, and as part of their task as jewellers ".



277

Indeed Lalique ranks high as a gem-engraver, for the many pretty
carvings in precious stones that adorn his jewels, and as a Medallist,

" As an admirer of natural perfection and a delighttul colourist,



278

Lalique is an acknowledged master, while every one of his works
is impregnated with marvellous taste and artistic feeling... He will
always stand alone as the real creator and the ablest representative
of one of the most important artistic movements of the nineteenth
century. " (G. A. Fournier, Rene Lalique, Magazine of Art, 1903,
p. 25).
