Description:

BRUNELLESCHI, Umberto (Illustrator). "Les Masques et les Personnages de la Comédie Italienne ". Paris: Aux Bureaux du Journal des Dames et des Modes, 1914. [15" x 20"]. ex no 309/415. Comprising a stunning collection of 12 full-page pochoir plates, Les Masques et les Personnages de la Comedie Italienne is widely regarded as Umberto Brunelleschi's finest work. The artist's strong Florentine influences are evident in his depiction of the traditional characters of the Commedia dell'Arte, including Scaramouche, Pierrot and Harlequine. The compositions feature dramatically costumed characters in the foreground set against whimsically rendered “stage-sets,” with distant landscapes in silhouette, expansive garden scenes, and grand palaces. One of the most important and rarest portfolios of the Art Deco period. Bookseller Inventory #
