Andrea Solari (also Solario) (1460–1524) was an Italian Renaissance painter of the Milanese school. He was initially named Andre del Gobbo.
He was one of the most important followers of Leonardo da Vinci, and brother of Cristoforo Solari, who gave him his first training whilst employed extensively on work at the Milan cathedral, and at the Certosa di Pavia.
Specifications of the medal are as follows:
a) It has measurements of 35 x 27 mm (without bail ) 1.4 x 1.1 in.
b) Its weight is 3.6 grams.

This is an extremely difficult technique.

e) The chain in the picture is included as a gift in the offer. It is gold plated and although vintage not of the same period as the medal.
