Petitot: costume greco senza corniceEnnemond-Alexandre Petitot
(Lione 1727-Marore (Parma) 1801)
Grenadier à la Grecque


Brown watercolored ink pen on paper, 315 x 250 mm, within coeval Parma frame

Provenance: Parma, private collection

The drawing, preparatory for one of the etching engraved by Benigno Bossi for the famous Mascarade à la Grecque, emblematically testifies to the spread of the goût grec in Parma and Italy as well and at the same time to the eclectic genius of Petitot, capable of recombining classical fragments with surprising Piranesian results.
