Les travaux d'Ulysse, Theodoor van Thulden (Paris: Chez Francois L'anglois, 1640)

Library Call Number: PA4033.T48 1640

This book is a set of engravings by Flemish Baroque artist Theodor van Thulden reproduced from the Mannerist frescoes, the Works of Ulysses, by Francesco Pimaticcio and Niccolo dell'Abate housed in the Galerie d'Ulysse in the Palace at Fontainebleau. Thulden's engravings and description of the plates are the only source of information extant of the gallery of Ulysses at Fontainebleau, destroyed in 1739. The artist's “TvT” monograph appears in the bottom corner of many engravings in this collection.

This book was acquired by ARC as part of the W. McAllister Johnson Collection to support studies in History, Art History, the Humanities, and Design.
