Daniel Rabel and the Grotesque

  • John H. Astingtion University of Toronto

Abstract

This note examines some aspects of the iconography of the costume designs of the chief designer for the French ballets de cour in the 1620s and 1630s, locating a tradition of caricature and grotesquerie at least a hundred years old, with its origins in German graphic art.
