Lodewyk Toeput: Some Pictures Related To The Commedia Dellárte
Stresses the documentary importance of surviving visual material from the commedia dell'arte for the history of the theatre, with particular reference to the work of the Netherlandish painter Lodewyk Toeput (c. 1550–c. 1603/5). The ten pictures attributed to him feature formal staged theatre performances, folk festivals and courtly celebrations, and these, along with a further seventeen by such artists as Ambrose I Francken, Joos de Momper, Louis de Caulery, Leandro Bassano, Marten de Vos and Sebastian Vrancx, which are compositionally and stylistically related, are here collated and compared, resulting in some significant re-attributions and a re-definition of Toeput's oeuvre.
