Short Description

Trionfi or Triumphs by Petrarch is a series of poems evoking the Roman triumph, where a victorious general and their army paraded through Rome with their captives and spoils. Written in Italian, it was a popular humanist work consisting of twelve chapters concerning the triumphs of the allegorical figures Love, Chastity, Glory, Eternity, Time, and Death who conquer each other in turn before further triumphs are awarded to Time and Eternity. Originating from France ca. 1560, this splendid manuscript is embellished by 18 watercolor miniatures illustrating Petrach’s text.
