Description:
Antoinette Bouzonette Stella was born into a family of goldsmiths and engravers. She and her sister Claudine trained with their uncle Jacques Stella, a painter and engraver, who had an atelier in the Palais de Louvre. This series of her engravings is after sculpture in the Palazzo del Te in Mantua by Gulio Romano and Primaticcio depicting the Emperor Sigismund's entry into Mantua in 1432. They were first published in 1675. These are impressions from the original plates, published sometime after 1787.
