This week's Featured Web Site is Emmanuel Van Dorpe's Artmedal site. It was mentioned last week by W.J. Elvin, albeit with a typo - the site address is artmedal.be, not artmedals.be. Sorry!
There are a great number of beautiful medals pictured on the site, which includes a history of the art medal and some specialize galleries, including a nice one of dog medals.
Pisanello, a 15th century Italian artist, is widely accepted as being the father of the modern art medal. Inspired by the coins of the antiquity, he designed the first disc-shaped bifaced sculptures which we call medals.
