ARTUR ROSENAUER - Vincenzo Catena: The Representation of a Musician from the Year 1529
A stylistic analysis of one of the woodcuts illustrating the treatise on music theory by L. Fogliano leads to the discovery of its author, Vincenzo Catena. From the publication date of the treatise on music we get as well the date of the origin of the woodcut, that is 1529, two years before the master's death. By this precise location in time this work is an important example of the later style of the Venetian master. Aside from its originality stylistically the woodcut by Catena is convincing proof of the close link of the artist with Venetian humanistic circles.
