REFERENZA 2
This 63-space game is one of the liveliest productions of the house of Basset, with images of clowns and of the feats of acrobats on every space, culminating in the splendid triple rope dance at the centre.
The ‘goose’ spaces are represented by the grimacing figures of the “Paillasse” family (i.e. clowns): there are two series, one being on the usual numbers 9,18,27; the other is unusual, being on 4, 14, 23, 32, 41, 49 and 59. The reason for this unusual spacing is not evident from the rules. On 14, we find ‘Jerome Cornichon Gilles Paillasse’, designated as ‘the father of them all’ [Watteau’s painting of Pierrot c1718 in the Louvre is traditionally identified as Gilles] The hazards are: at space 6, a balancing horizontal figure takes the place of the bridge; there is no equivalent of the inn at space 19; space 31 shows Paillasse in a well; space 42, normally the labyrinth, shows Paillasse trying to keep hold of the ladder to descend from his rope; the prison space at 52 shows an acrobat tied to his rope by one foot; while the death space at 58 shows the young Mezetin [spelled thus; Mezzetin was another stock figure from the Commedia dell’Arte, well known on the Paris stage as the one who always failed. The painting of him by Watteau is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art]. He is shown hanging by his neck from his rope, very much alive but with a death’s head in evidence.
