This engraving is by G. Audran, born 1640; one of the ablest engravers that ever lived. He was employed by Lewis XIV. to engrave Le Brun's battles of Alexander, of which set this is one. These engravings are said in Rees' Encyclopedia, to be the largest and best historical engravings ever executed. [P. 5; exhibited under heading: "Engravings."]
