The British Museum said it supported any efforts to protect elephants and to curb the illegal trade and export of ivory, but stressed this should not include antiques.

"There is no public benefit in restricting the display or movement of ivory works of art made before 1947 and legislation should not extend to cover actions carried out before that date," a spokesman said.

On the subject of destroying all object d'art made from ivory, and in particular portrait miniatures painted on ivory, television presenter and antiques expert Philip Mould said: "The thought that, say, some of our most emotive miniature portraits of Nelson, Byron and the young Queen Victoria become persona non grata - artworks of shame for which there is no market - is up there with book-burning and recent cultural vengeance meted out on the buildings of ancient Syria."

Yes, We All Know There Should Be Nothing That Encourages The Slaughter Of Elephants For Their Tusks, Deplorable In The Extreme, But To Our Mind That Policy Should In No Way Extinguish The Appreciation Of Old Worked Ivory Such As This. We Feel Prince William, Admirable Though His Campaign To Save The Elephants Is, Was Misinformed When He Declared All The Ivory In Buckingham Palace Should Be Heaped Into A Pile And Turned Into A Bonfire! Are We Going To Burn 13thc Islamic Chess Pieces, 18thC Japanese Netsuke, 19thC Dieppe Mirrors, Medievil German Saints? Of Course Not! Old Ivory Is Wonderful.

A Pair Of French Equestrian Engravings

 

 


 


A Pair Of 18thC French Equestrian, Dressage, Copper Plate Engravings In Modern Burr Wood Frames.

This pair of 18thC French equestrian engravings originates from: 'The Encyclopedie ou Dictionnaire raisonne des sciences, des arts et des metiers, par une Societe de Gens de lettres.' which was published under the direction of Diderot and d'Alembert, with 17 volumes of text and 11 volumes of plates between 1751 and 1772. It contained 72,000 articles written by more than 140 contributors. This encyclopedia was a massive reference work for the arts and sciences, as well as a means to propagate the ideas of the French Enlightenment. The impact of this encyclopedia was enormous.

Artists and Engravers: Denis Diderot (1713-1784) was a French philosopher, art critic and writer. Jean le Rond d'Alembert (1717-1783) was a French mathematician, mechanician, physicist and philosopher. These plates are engraved by J.A.Defehrt and Bonaventure/Benoit-Louis Prevost after J.R Lucotte or Goussier.
