Male servants and male masters (but not male amorosi) are masked and those characters themselves are often referred to as "masks". Some of the better known commedia dell'arte characters are Arlecchino (also known as Harlequin), Pierrot and Pierrette, Pantalone, Il Dottore, Brighella, Il Capitano, Colombina, the Innamorati, Pedrolino, Pulcinella, Sandrone, Scaramuccia (also known as Scaramouche), il Somardino, La Signora, and Tartaglia. In the 17th century as commedia became popular in France, the characters of Pierrot, Columbine and Harlequin were refined and became essentially Parisian. Pecsenke, Joseph A. was a theatre actor and artist / designer who came to the United States from Hungary in 1971. He directed opera performances in several countries and used these experiences to create his Opera and Commedia dell'Arte etchings. ---Pecsenke's work has been exhibited worldwide--in Vienna, Venice, Budapest and The United States.
