Leviores et (ut videtur) extemporaneae picturae, quas grottescas vulgo vocant, quibus Romani Uli antiqui ad triclinia aliaque secretiora aedium looa exornanda utebantur [1] (Light and (as it can be seen) Extemporaneous Pictures which in Everyday Language Are Called Grotesques) is a collection of grotesque prints.

Title page[2] for a set of grotesque prints, Leviores picturae, undated and unsigned though now thought to have been published in Rome by Antonio Lafrery (1512-77) sometime after 1544. The title page refers to a series of nineteen engravings of grotesques often ascribed to Enea Vico but now thought to be reverse copies of Vico’s originals, 1541-42. London: Victoria and Albert Museum[3].
