Capitano Masks

Newman's handmade Commedia and neutral masks

Representing Spanish Mercinary Soldiers; despised by the Italians and ridiculed in the theatre of the marketplace, Il Capitano became a popular stock character of the Commedia Dell'Arte.

Newman has used the 17th century engravings of Jaques Callot to create a variety of takes on the shabby, bombastic and cowardly Capitano and created a few new nincompoops to boot (ie Capitano Tres Huevos.... most men have only two!).
