Medals are best known for celebrating important figures or heroic deeds, but this unique book features medals that condemn their subjects. They expose the long and rich tradition of this darker side of medals.
Alongside the long standing and well-known association of medals with glory and achievement lies another darker tradition of the medal as an indicator of dishonour. Medals of Dishonour has revealed this little-known history, and will also show internationally renowned contemporary artists engaging with the medal as a vehicle for political and social comment. The first part of the catalogue consists of a representative selection of medals from the 16th to the 20th centuries, Subjects range from the sombre and the bizarre to the scatological including Dutch medals satirising James II and Louis XIV, German and British medals on financial scandal and political corruption, a French medal showing Napoleon III as a cockchafer,German W.W.I antiwar medals. The last 50 pages cover more modern subjects including war and race.
