Pulcinella by Maurice Sand

Pulcinella in 1700 (1860) by Maurice Sand, found in Masques et bouffons: comédie italienne.

Maurice Sand is the son of famous French writer George Sand. She was a prolific writer and a woman of extraordinary vitality. She and composer Frédéric Chopin were very close friends, lovers I believe. 

I looked at my post this morning, but suddenly it disappeared. I had a copy of my article and reinserted it. However, it was missing a few sentences and I had not printed the images. Besides, I had no captions and older versions of the post surfaced.

The post has been rebuilt. I can’t understand what happened.

Pulcinella (Polichinelle) was a scapegoat among stock characters of the commedia dell’arte.

Love to everyone 💕
