The Devil is not ugly as it is painted

"Il Diavolo non è brutto quanto si dipinge

Togli quel Mostro orribile, e deforme, che tu pingesti in minaccioso aspetto;

S'asconte fatto queste vaghe forme, lo Spirito maligno, ed il folletto"

Original etching, watercoloured.

From: "Proverbi Proverbi toscani espressi in figura da Giuseppe Piattoli pittore fiorentino", Florence, N. Pagni e G. Bardi, 1788.

Small scratch on the right margin, anyway out of the drawing; diffused burnishing and foxing dot. (see photo).

Assembled in elegant passepartout.
