Very slight losses in the Lacquer H. 12 x L. 9 cm History: Long after the expulsion of the Portuguese in 1640, Japan continued to manufacture lacquers for export. 18th century artists were able to take advantage of the gold lacquer processes to transpose western engravings like here. The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam thus preserves several examples of this refined art. Anne Le Fevre, wife Ironside, was a Hellenist and French scholar. Her portrait engraved by Robert Gaillard is kept in the National Portrait Gallery "Edinburgh in Scotland. The same legend is inscribed on it as on the back of this medallion. Bibliography: C. Shimizu, Les laques du Japon, Paris, 1988, pp. 225-227.
