Aegidius SADELER II (ca. 1570 - 1629): Antique vase after Polidoro da Caravaggio, from a complete series of 10 plates, part of 'Recueil de vases', from Hippolyte Destailleur's collection.
We are pleased to present in particular an important collection of 45 series of prints with a total of 325 plates representing vases that have been gathered and bound in 4 volumes by Hippolyte Destailleur (1822 - 1893), a French architect and well-known collector. We distinguished in particular four important and rare series: a series of 12 vases by René BOYVIN (or Pierre MILAN) after Rosso FIORENTINO, Polidoro DA CARAVAGGIO and Léonard THIRY; a series of 10 vases and 4 knives by Aegidius SADELER II after Polidoro DA CARAVAGGIO and Francesco SALVIATI; a series of 6 vases by Claude-Henri WATELET after Jean-Baptiste Marie PIERRE and a set of 37 subjects of vases, tombs, ruins and fountains by Jean-Laurent LEGEAY. Among the other series, including series by Adélaïde ALLOU, Stefano della BELLA, Charles Nicolas COCHIN I, Jacques DAMERY, Gabriel HUQUIER or Jean LEPAUTRE, some are very rare or rarely found complete. We invite you to discover this important collection in the pdf catalogue which you can download on this page (please click on "download worklist" at the top left of this page) or on our website sarah-sauvin.com
