    Autor posvećuje pozornost životu i radu glasovitoga bečkog medaljera i kipara Rudolfa Marschalla, čiji je učenik bio i Ivo Kerdić. Dvije Marschallove plakete izrađene su za naše krajeve: ona iz 1901. u povodu otvaranja bosansko-hercegovačke željeznice prema Dubrovniku i ona iz 1905. u povodu Strossmayerove smrti.Rudolf Ferdinand Marschall (Vienna, 1873 – Vienna, 1967) was one of the most celebrated among the many medallists of the Sezession in Austria. He modelled medals with the portraits of two Austrian emperors, the German Emperor, the Czar of Bulgaria, the popes from Leon XIII to John XXIII, and many more illustrious persons of the first half of the 20th century. In 1905 he was involved into the so-called “Affaire Marschall”. Namely, when his teacher Joseph Tautenhayn retired the Emperor appointed R. Marschall as his successsor, the hell broke loose, including an unseen general strike at the Academy of Fine Arts. Since the Emperor’s decree could not be annulled, the Austrian minister of Religion and Education founded a new school for engravers and medallists in 1905 and appointed R. Marschall its director, a post he held until the Anschluss in 1938, when he was retired and the school closed. The Marschall Affair was also described by one of the eyewitnesses, Ivo Kerdić, the Croatian pupil of Marschall’s in his unpublished memoirs “Moj život i uspomene” (My life and memories). For the history of Croatian medal R. Marschall has some significance, because he was the author of several important plaquettes. One of them was struck on the occasion of the inauguration of the Bosnian-Dubrovnik narrow-track railway in 1901. It connected Bosnia with the coast of Dubrovnik, running from Sarajevo, via Mostar, Metković, Gruž in Dubrovnik, to Zelenika in the Bay of Kotor. The other plaquette was made in 1905, and originally it was planned to mark the 90th birthday of the famous Roman Catholic bishop Josip Juraj Strossmayer, whom R. Marschall had portrayed while still alive. However, the bishop died and the plaquette was issued on the occasion of his demise

    Autor se osvrće na šest vrijednih brončanih medalja talijanske renesanse, nabavljenih za Muzej prije I. svjetskog rata. Sve su djela svestranog umjetnika Mattea de\u27 Pastija. Jedna od njih predstavlja dubrovačkog nadbiskupa Timotea Maffei, dvije Isottu da Rifmini i tri njezina muža Sigismonda Malatestu. Medalje datiraju iz vremena između 1446. i 1450.Six bronze medals from the Numismatic Collection of the Archeological Museum in Zagreb, all acquired before the First World War, are dealt with in this article. They were modelled by the famous Italian artist Matteo de \u27Pasti of Verona between 1446 and 1450. Their major part is directly or indirectly in connection with Sigismondo Malatesta, one of the most picturesque personalites of Italy of the fifteenth century. Malatesta was a gif ted warrior and an accomplished patron of arts, Three of the medals bear his image on the obverse, with various scenes on the reverse (Catalogue Nos. 4-6) . The beautiful Isotta degli Atti, Malatesta\u27s mistress, later, wife is depicted on two more medals (Cat. Nos. 2-3), one with an elephant (the Malatesta device »Elephas Indus culices non timet«) on the reverse, the other showing a closed book of elegies dedicated to Isotta. More space is dedicated to Timoteo Maffei (died in 1470), whose portrait can be seen on one medal (Cat. No. 1) , A citizen of Verona, just like the artist himself, he became canon at an early stage, and acquiring a profound learning, began the career as a famous praecher, writer and teacher, his fame spreading all over Italy, All this brought the favour of three Popes (Pius Il, Nicolas V and Paul Il) upon him, The latter nominated Maffei first as his own secretary, in order to invest him as the fourty-seventh Archishop of Dubrovnik in 1467, Maffei arrived in Dubrovnik in the same year, but soon enough discovered that his own ideas about the ecclesiastical, as well as secular matters did not correspond to those of the Ragusan Senate, The strife ended in an excommunication cast by the Arch bishop upon his people in 1469. Maffei died in 1470 while preparing for a journey to Hungary, following the invitation of the Hungarian and Croatian King Mathias I, and was subsequently buried in the Romanesque Cathedral of Dubrovnik. His medal seems to have been cast around 1446
