EDITORS COMMENTS
This exquisite handcolored illustration, drawn and lithographed by Paul Mercuri with text by Camille Bonnard, presents a captivating portrait of an Italian noblewoman from the 14th century playing a harp. The image, taken from the book "Historical Costumes from the 12th to 15th Centuries," published by Levy Fils in Paris in 1860, offers a glimpse into the opulence and elegance of the Italian aristocracy during this period. The noblewoman is depicted in a sumptuous gold dress, adorned with intricate patterns and embellishments, suggesting her high social status. Her voluminous robe, draped over the gold dress, is secured with a sash at the waist, adding to her regal appearance. A veil covers her head, held in place by a delicate bonnet, which further emphasizes her femininity and refinement. The harp, a popular musical instrument during the Middle Ages, is held in her lap, its strings stretched taut and ready to produce melodic notes. The noblewoman's expression is one of deep concentration, as if lost in the music she is creating. The rich colors and intricate details of the illustration, from the gold threads on the dress to the folds of the robe and the delicate lines of the harp, bring the image to life and transport us back in time. This illustration, created by the skilled hands of Paul Mercuri and the insightful pen of Camille Bonnard, offers a fascinating glimpse into the fashion and culture of the Italian nobility during the 14th century. The use of a harp as a prop adds to the image's historical authenticity, making it a valuable resource for those interested in the history of fashion, music, and art during the Middle Ages.
