  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


This article deals for the %rst time with a satirical print by Vieira Lusitano that derides in many ways his colleague the Spanish sculptor Felipe de Castro. The Portuguese seeks for the approval of his fellow artists at the Accademia di San Luca by using a vocative inscription. The print is a clear example of ‘gusto romano’ and presents colourful Latin inscriptions and also contemporary Italian satirical quotations. This study aims to shed some light not only on Vieira’s cultural models, but also on his until now unknown relationship with the mundane life of Rome.
