Oostenrijk - Medaille - 1800

37mm silver medal for the death of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart by A. Guillemard and F. Stuckhardt, likely struck in the late 18th Century just after the composer's death, half-length portrait to right with WOLFGANG GOTTLIEB MOZART - GEB. 1756. GEST. 1791. around // Genius in front of Muse with Lyra, with HERRSCHER DER SEELEN.DURCH MELODISCHE DENKKRAFT. Choice EF. Anton Guillemard (1765-1812) was a medalist and coin engraver. He was trained in Günzburg and active there until 1777. From 1777-92 he worked at the Milan mint and with Napoleon's arrival he fled to Vienna then to Prague where he became first engraver, "K. K. Medailleur und Obergravier biem Münzamte in Prag ", of the mint in 1796. He often worked with F. Stuckhardt. This repoussé method of creating medals is a metalworking technique in which a malleable metal is ornamented or shaped by hammering from the reverse side. The technique of repoussé is the one least frequently employed, although it was used quite widely in the Netherlands during the 17th century. Here the medal is made by hammering a thin shell of a metal blank into a hollow die on which the artist has made a design. The obverse and reverse of the medals, which are made separately, are then soldered together, the resulting medal being hollow. Embossing produces much the same effect but the process is reversed. Here the design is formed by pressing down the background, leaving the design in relief.
