[GASTRONOMY] PEDRO, Fracesco del/ MAGGIOTO, Francesco. Multa petentibus... . Italy, c. 1775.

[23 x 30 cm printed surface], Copperplate engraving. A few folds but generally excellent, with a fine impression.


Charming engraving of a genre scene depicting a man grating parmesan cheese, by the Venetian engraver and Volpato pupil Francesco del Pedro (1749-1806) , after a painting by the Venetian painter Francesco Maggioto ( 1750-1805). The printer has added a moralizing motto from Horace Odes III.16 on how to the fortunate man, whatever material goods are at hand are enough.

* Benezit VIII.186 (Pedro), VII. 62 (Maggioto).
