L’Arte della Pittura. Poema con alcune riflessioni che servono di note tradotto in italiano da Nemillo Caramicio.
First Italian edition, translated from the true first edition (1760) of this didactic poem, Watelet’s first work, composed at the country seat of Moulinjoli after his travels in Germany and Italy. It is dedicated to the members of the Royal Academy of Painting, with a preliminary discourse and reflections on the different aspects of painting, serving as a commentary on the poem. The work proved successful, and assured its author a seat in the Académie française.
Nemillo Caraccio was the pseudonym of Agostino Lomellini, doge of Genoa.
