Commedia dell'arte

posted on 25th of march, 2009

Did a search for commedia dell' arte, an ancient italian theatrical - you can read more about it , by the way it is still kept alive by great artists such as Dario Fo.

I had expected to get thousands of images of masks and performers, and the charachters harlequin, pantalone, brighella and so on...
But no.....my search resulted in 8 photos, wow I think I discovered a niche...:)

I immediately made an illustration with one of the charachters, and hopefully more will follow, since this one was approved.

Which character did you draw? Does he have a name? He looks like a detective.
