Biographical/historical: This theatre has been identified as the Teatro Filarmonico in Verona, Italy. Intended as an opera house, its first building was designed by the architect Francesco Bibiena, and inaugurated in 1732. Damaged by fire in 1749, it was rebuilt with some changes, and rededicated in 1754. This print may possibly commemorate that event. Bombing destroyed the theatre in World War II, but its reconstruction, completed in 1975, aimed to restore the architecture of the past.
Biographical/historical: The Victoria & Albert Museum in London holds a version of this print published by Jacques Simon Chereau, dated to the eighteenth century. Though the Chereau version is also hand-colored, it has a more varied palette, and the colors are more skillfully applied. The Victoria & Albert also holds a copy of this print published by Daumont in the nineteenth century. Again, the hand-coloring appears to be of better quality than on this copy. The Bibliothèque Nationale de France and the Jerome Robbins Dance Division of the New York Public Library hold versions published by Mondhare, which reverse the image on this print and add the legend "Vue de la comedie de Verone," printed in reverse above the image.
