For more information - for instance for the history of the art medal - look at the numerous links of this art medal website.

This website is dedicated to all those art medals, which are hidden in safes or safe deposit boxes - although of no great monetary value. May at least their images delight some of the visitors of this website.   Ce site est dédié à toutes les médailles qui, bien que présentant peu de valeur marchande, sont renfermées dans des coffres. Puisse au moins leur reflet réjouir quelques amateurs de belles choses!   Diese Webseite ist all den Kunstmedaillen gewidmet, die - obwohl als Geldanlage ungeeignet und keinen großen finanziellen Wert darstellend - verborgen in Banksafes oder Schließfächern lagern. Möge somit wenigstens ihr Anblick auf dieser Webseite den Betrachter erfreuen.

"The plastic arts are the materialisation of thought and feeling, united by whatever two- or three-dimensional basic material the artist chooses to work with. Unlike painting and sculpture - art forms that saw a break away from the stigma of manual labour during the Renaissance period, placing the status of the artist on a par with that of the intellectual - medals are still considered an inferior art form, more a product of craft-work than a vehicle for the expression of aesthetic thought and feeling, capable of making its own social statement. Evidently this is not a question of the size of a medal - quite the opposite. It is quality, not quantity, that is of the essence here. What counts in medal-making is the relationship between the product itself and its public in the wider sense of the word. In other words, it is a question of taste, which is itself steeped in and influenced by the history of art and the development of ideas and aesthetics..." ( quotation from the MEDAL, Autumn 2003, "Contemporary Medals" from J. Teixeira , Portugal ).

May this website help to give the public a better assessment, that art medals are an important and vital part of arts.
