Résumé / Abstract : For nearly a century, members of three generations of the Bibiena family were the leading theater designers in Europe, working both in their native Italy and in cities as far afield as Vienna, Stockholm, St. Petersburg, and Lisbon. Their legacy survives through their remarkable drawings, which range from energetic sketches to highly finished watercolors. Celebrationg the promised gift to the Morgan Library & Museum of Bibiena drawings from the collection of Jules Fisher, a Tony Award-winning lighting designer, 'Architecture, Theater, and Fantasy' explores the full range of the Bibienas' work and influence.
