Los valores del rey : el uso de las antiguas monedas en la configuración de la imagen de Carlos V / Cruces Blázquez Cerrato

Abstract:

We present here the results of a first analysis of the figurative repertoire appearing in the Renaissance Medal Books, as well as its use in the 16th century to transmit messages in various media. This work has adhered to the figure of Carlos V and it has focused on tracing the roots of the iconographic program of the Emperor that the exaltation of his virtues occupied a pride of place. It is not intended to provide a complete overview of carolina iconography but a first approach to an issue that I can bring some news of interest about the origin of the figures used to configure the image of Carlos V.

Summary:

The collection of the Museu de Prehistoria de Valencia contains the Masia-Vilanova bequest, dating back to 1985 and 1996 and comprised of books, documents and 25 medals which belonged to Juan Vilanova y Piera (1821-1893), the geologist and paleontologist who introduced prehistoric studies in Spain. The set of medals includes commemorative and honorary pieces which help us gain a deep understanding of the academic and social environment in which this distinguished researcher lived in the second half of the nineteenth century.

Abstract:

Taking place within a period of thirty to forty years in the early 19th century but with a speed more in keeping with the 21st, the greatest enhancements were made to the screw presses that had been used in the manufacture of coinage since the beginning of the 17th century. These screw presses, mostly for practical reasons, would be permanently replaced during the course of the century by new presses based on different mechanical principles. That process of development, facilitated by the Swiss Jean-Pierre Droz and the Frenchman Philippe Gengembre, has been immortalized on four Spanish medals or medal types. Some of these are kept in the Casa de la Moneda Museum, and they are the ones that we present in this paper. The third key personage in this import of technology was Mariano Gonzalez de Sepulveda, the Spanish engraver who learnt the method from the former of the afore-mentioned during the first few years of the century. He strove to complete the purchase of a series of tools that he considered essential for the advancement of his art in Spain. Years later he would be the one who would introduce Gengembre’s method.
