in Italian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The collection is comprised of prints and several drawings of sets and architectural plans by Italian Renaissance and Baroque scenographers, such as Bernardo Buontalenti, Giulio Parigi, Giacomo Torelli, Ferdinando Tacca, and members of the Bibiena family. The collection also focuses on a specific theatrical genre: the commedia dell'arte. Commedia dell'arte characters and masks, performances, and roles played by well-known actors are represented. Included are etchings of commedia dell'arte characters by prominent printmakers Jacques Callot, Henri and Nicolas Bonnart, and Charles-Nicolas Cochin. Reproductive prints illustrate the reception of the oeuvre of Claude Gillot, Antoine Watteau, and François de Troy. Printed ephemera also shed light on the variety of uses of commedia dell'arte imagery, and its social and historical context

in Latin and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Bardi's "Intermedi" illustrated the power of music. Three of them (nos. 1, 4, and 5) described "musica mundana" or cosmic harmony, and the other three (nos. 2, 3, and 6) "musica humana" or music at the human level: the first of these (represented in the present etching) showed the harmony of the spheres (Dizionario biografico degli italiani, vol. 6, p. 301, s.v. Bardi). In the centre Necessity holds the spindle of the world. Her throne is supported by the three Parcae (Fates). To left and right of the throne are the seven planets and Astraea. Below, twelve Sirens (DeGrazia Bohlin, loc. cit., reporting the interpretation of A. Warburg)
