Identifies and classifies early modern depictions of Harlequins and other comic performers in patched costume. The Harlequin costume can e traced to the commedia dell'arte tradition and seems to have been a role first established by Tristano Martinelli (1557-1630) while performing in Paris. Some early Harlequin depictions reflect specific performances by Martinelli himself, some are general depictions of stage practice and custom, and others are based on iconographic precedents.
