About Jealousy

Jealousy is a common theme in art history, explored in painting and sculpture, poetry and prose, as well as in television and film. Artists and writers have contemplated its symbolic meaning as one of humanity’s strongest and most susceptible vices. It is prevalent in allegories, and is often indicated in such by a mask or veil. This sculpture is based on one of Jacques Callot’s (1592-1635) etchings.

Callot was one of the most influential and accomplished printmakers in 17th century Europe, and was highly influenced by dramatic themes revolving around celebration and theatrical performance. Marinsky’s elongated figure shows the Mannerist influence of the 17th century, and also acts to exaggerate the sculpture’s exuberant presence. Medieval carnival symbolism evolved to express the grotesque and eccentric qualities of masquerade, while showing the dualities of the human spirit. Many harlequin representations reflect either positive or negative character traits, but are always dramatic in spirit.
