• Hand colored copper engraving of Saint Apollonia attributed to Jean Baptiste Barbé

      Barbe, Jean Baptiste, 1578-1649
      Depicts Saint Apollonia using dental forceps to collect several extracted teeth into a piece of cloth. The engraving includes a Latin inscription which attributes its creation to Barbé, whom we suppose probably to be the French engraver and printer Jean Baptiste Barbé (1578-1649). The original piece measures 10 X 8 cm.
