Description

Cesare Vecellio (c. 1530 – c. 1601) was an Italian engraver and painter of the Renaissance, active in Venice.

He was the cousin of the painter Titian. Like Titian, he was born in Cadore in the Veneto. He accompanied Titian to Augsburg in 1548, and seems to have worked as his assistant. Many of Cesare’s pictures were ascribed, perhaps knowingly, to Titian. In the Milan Pinacoteca there is a small Trinity by Cesare. He died in Venice.

The crude woodcuts for book assembling contemporary fashion from across the world, “De gli Habiti Antichi e Modérni di Diversi Parti di Mondo” published in Venice in 1590 by Cesare as if they were his works, may in fact belong to Christopher Krieger from Nuremberg. They depict the garb, sometimes fanciful and imagined, of individuals, men and women, from Tsars to Tribeswomen from the Arabian Desert to Muscovite nobles to Arabian nobles to Inca nobles.

Cesare also published a book of prints depicting the jewels of royal crowns, titled Corona delle nobili e virtuose donne (1591).

In the 16th century, the time which the experts recon that the history of fashion illustration begins, there are more than 200 collections of woodcuts of garments were published. The best-known book is the ”De gli habiti antichi et moderni di diverse parti del mondo” (1590) published in Italy by Cesare Vecellio, which includes 420 woodcuts depicting garments of Europe, Africa, and Asia. And these illustrations of dress became the prototype for fashion illustration as we known today (Blackman, 2007)
