The harlequin played an important role in the career of the painter Gino Severini. The famous figure, derived from the Italian commedia dell'arte, was the Tuscan painter's companion in his 1910 adventures in cubist-futurist geometries as well as in his 1920s revolution "rappelling à l'ordre" when he was "neoclassical". . A touch of metaphysics dominated his works.
The Harlequin, sometimes with other characters, also returned to Severini after World War II, when the artist's Cubist inspiration reappeared in his paintings.
