Abstract:
Merely one year after the beginning of the Council of Trent, Enea Vico, under the name Enea Parmigiano, was granted a privilege in 1546 for ‘several very beautiful and rare drawings never before seen, nor printed… which he wishes to engrave and publish’. Conflation of the production regulations expressed in the privilege legislation with the language and timeline of the privilege case documents narrows which privileged artwork previously associated with Vico could viably result from his 1546 privilege. In this instance, the prevalence of restrictions to which Vico and his contemporaries were subjected under the seven additional privilege and license legislation ratified between 1517 and 1544 (1543 m.v.) directly contributes to contemporary insight into these works.
