A remarkable vignette of artificial 17th-century Italian courtly life. ‘Love’ is hunted in eyes, in hair, between breasts, before a hilarious game of ‘tongue-twisters’. Best though are 14 mannered mood-pictures spanning every emotion in intensely detailed word-painting. Truly revelatory. George Pratt
