Artemisia Preparing to Drink the Ashes of Her Husband

Other Images:

Engraving, ca. 1539, 190 x 134 mm., Bartsch 83, Landau 91 a (of b). A very fine, sharp impression on laid paper with a complex but difficult to decipher watermark, trimmed to the subject, ca. 2 mm. into the subject at the top, removing the top of the escutcheon, but with apparently 1 mm. more at the right than the impressions illustrated in Bartsch and Landau; tiny surface loss at the right bottom. Artemisia was the widow of Mausolus, a satrap of Caria in Asia Minor. She erected a great monument to his memory at Halicarnassus (hence, the word mausoleum), which was one of the seven wonders of the world. According to legend, she mixed the ashes of Mausolus in liquid which she then drank, becoming a living tomb. Accordingly, she symbolizes a widow's devotion to her husband's memory.

Wilhelm Drugulin (Lugt 2612). Drugulin (1825-1879), who was based in Leipzig, was one of the most important and influential print dealers of his time, and the catalogs he issued were, in many cases, ground breaking in their scholarship. In his later years he grew less interested in commerce and more in building his own personal collection. His inventory, containing many superb and rare prints, was sold in various auctions in Paris, Leipzig and London during his lifetime, but his personal collection, which contained such unbelievable rarities as a niello by Finiguerra and landscapes by Hercules Seghers, was dispersed only after his death.
