Italian comedians in renaissance prints.
The Print Quarterly, 4(3)
The servant-master partnership is the comic core of the commedia dell'arte. This article considers some representations of the theatrical servant-master pair in sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century popular prints, and publishes several previously unknown signed and dated prints of the 1580s by Ambrogio Brambilla. These identify Brambilla for the first time as a significant Italian artist of commedia dell'arte related compositions.
