remarkable for breadth of execution and finish. From their first appear-
ance in the i6th Cent, they became famous. This (M. Sauvagoet's) is
probably the finest collection known.

Plastic Wax Medallions.

The art of modelling portrait bas-reliefs in wax was known to the
Gx'eeks and Romans, and was revived at Florence under the Medici. It
was practised by Luca della Robbia, L. da Vinci, and Santorino (whose
model of the Laocoon was considered by Raffaello to be a chef d'ceuvre) ;
by Michel Angelo (to whom is attributed a Descent from the Cross in the
Chapel of the Royal Palace at Miinchen) ; and by Benvenuto Cellini, a
model of whose Perseus is extant at Florence. To these succeeded a
number of artists, such as Alfonzo Lombardi of Ferrara ; J. B. Sozzini of
Siena ; and Rosso da Guigny of Florence, who emulated the success of
the Ger. artists in wood medallions. The Ital. Art becoming the fashion
in Germany, it was taken up by Laurenz Strauch and Wenceslas Mailer,
l)oth of Nuremberg, in the i6th Cent., and practised in the 17th and i8th
Cents, by C. Rapp, Chevalier (worker in ivoi-y), Weihenmeyer, and
Braunin. It is probable that the medallions in polychrome were executed
as portraits ; while those in white were simply studies made by engravers
for br. medals.
