Abstract

Considers the iconography of the commedia dell’arte from its late 16th century beginnings to the mid-18th century. Particular attention is paid to the important role of Imperial festival culture and court patronage, in the rise of the commedia dell’arte and its images in the German-speaking lands. The 22 reproductions draw heavily on the holdings of the Theatermuseum Wien and other Austrian collections, and include highly significant, rarely reproduced images.
