in metal and hone-stone, who worked at Nuremberg, circ. 1530-
1570. He was born in 1510 and died about 1570.

Doppelmayr, speaking of Hans Lobsinger, says that he was
skilled in many things, and showed much talent in modelling and
casting in metal, wax and plaster, and in cutting precious stones,
and it is therefore probable that a place in the circle of artists
belongs to him. However, the medal which is shown as his work,
having his portrait at the pge of 25, and which is dated 1539, does not

quite merit this eulogium. If on the contrary we could ascribe to
him with certainty a medal having the portrait of Lorenz Stayber
of Nuremberg, and his wife, of the year 1535, and signed by the
author L, then Doppelmayr's praise would fall far short of its merit,
to such a pitch of perfection is this medal brought. " (Bolzenthal,

LOCH, CHRISTOPH (Germ.}. Goldsmith and Burger of Hall in
Tyrol, presented in 1560 a medal to the Emperor Ferdinand I. (as
a token of his ability as an Engraver) and was paid 5 Gulden for
his expenses and return journey from Vienna.

Before 1550, we find his name in official documents, as Assist-
ant-engraver to the elder Ursenthaler at the Mint of Hall. He later
applied for the office of Master of the Mint, but apparently he was
unsuccessful.

His medal of Ferdinand I. is still unknown.

LODOVICO DA FOLIGNO (Vide vol. II, p. 118). Von Fabriczy
makes the following comment on Armand and Heiss's attribution
to this artist of the medals of Pietro and Giovanni de' Medici.
"Beide Medaillen sind wahrscheinlich, wie auch die Cosimos,
iiber Auftrag Piero Medicis entstanden, und zwar zwischen 1465
und 1469. Auf das Zeugnis eines Schreibens hin, das der seit 1451
in Ferrara thatige Goldschmied und Medailleur Lodovico da Foli-
gno im Juni 1471 an Lorenzo de' Medici richtete, hat Armand und
nach ihm Heiss geglaubt, sie diesem zuschreiben zu sollen. Uns
scheint der Brief gerade das Gegenteil zu besagen. Obwohl er
namlich die Sendung einer Denkmiinze der Herzogin Bona von
Mailand begleitete, und somit fast selbstverstandlich dazu auffor-
derte, die Medaillen von Lorenzos Vater und Oheim zu erwahnen,
vvenn Lodovico solche fruher ausgefiihrt ha'tte, so spricht der
Meister darin nur " von der Liebe, die er stets fur seine Herrlich-
keit den edlen Herrn Piero de Cosimo gehegt habe ", sowie auch
von dem dringenden Wunsche, Lorenzo zu sehen (der Ausdruck
kann auch als "kennen zu lernen" gedeutet werden, womit dann
bewiesen ware, dass Lodovico in den Jahren 1465-1469 nicht in
Florenz gewesen sei). Leider ist uns keine der urkundlich bezeug-
ten Denkmiinzen des Kiinstlers (auf Galeazzo Maria Sforza ') und
seine Gemahlin Bona, auf Lionello und Sigismondo d'Este) erhalten
geblieben un d somit der stilistische Vergleich derselben mit den beiden
Medicistucken versagt. Aber diese scheinen uns denn doch in
ihrem strengen, die Hasslichkeit der Dargestellten in nichts beschon-
igenden oder mildernden Realismus viel eher auf Florenz als auf
die um jene Zeit in ihrem Charakter weichere ferraresische Medail-
listik zu weisen. Sollten wir aber fur sie einen Autor nennen, so



i. Oder sollten wir in dem grossen (Diam. 5 cm.) 1470 datierten gepragten
Medaillon mit dem behelmten Sforzalowen auf dem Revers eine dieser Arbeiten
vor uns haben? Friedlander hat sie Taf. XXXVI, n unter den von ihm dem Cara-
dosso zugeteilten Munzen und Medaillen abgebildet.

Nun ist es aber kaum glaublich, dass man dem erst Achtzehnjahrigen eine so
bedeutende Arbeit sollte anvertraut haben fer ist fruhestens 1452, nicht wie
Friedlander will, schon 1445 geboren). Auch will sie stilistisch gar nicht zu Cara-
dossos beglaubigten Pragungen stimmui. Man kcnnt davon nur Silberexemplare,
und Lodovico sagt ja in seinem Briefe, er bilde sie in Silber. Die um ein Jahr
verspatete Datierung konnte ein Versehen des Kiinstlers sein ; oder aber-wahr-
scheinlicher-hatte er das Wachsmodell, das er in seinem Schreiben erwahnt, schon
das Jahr zuvor in Mailand gemacht und darnach die Medaille auch datiert.

LOMBARDI, ALFONSO CITADELLA, surnamed ALFONSO (ltd.}.
A Ferrarese Sculptor and Medallist of the first three decades of the
sixteenth century; he died in 1537. The medals, described below,
which are ascribed to this artist, are still unknown. " Their attribu-
tion to Alfonso Lombard!", says Armand, "rests on documents
which M. G. Milanesi has been kind enough to indicate to me".
The most important of these are two letters addressed by Alfonso
to the Duke of Mantua, Federigo II. Gonzaga. One, dated 6. May
1536, informs us that he had executed a medal of Pope Paul III.;
from the other we gather that he cut the medals of Molza, Antonio
Tebaldeo, and Cardinal Hippolytus de' Medici ; and in commission
for the same cardinal Alfonso would appear to have made the medal
of Giulia Gonzaga (widow of Vespasiano Colonna).

The only known extant medallic work of Lombardi is a Portrait-
medal of the Milanese architect Andrea Tectori, fy.. CAXA.DE.

in Delaware Co., Pa., and served an apprenticeship as a Line-engray-
er with George Murray, Philadelphia, doing some high-class plate-
work before he was free, in 1819. He was one of the originators
of the National Portrait Gallery of distinguished Americans, the first
volume of which appeared in 1834. Longacre drew from life and
engraved many of the portraits entire. Like his predecessors, he
died in office, on January i, 1869. During his term Longacre was
variously assisted by P. F. Cross, William Barber, Anthony
C. Paquet, and William H. Key. The changes and additions during
