The present study intends to demonstrate the anteriority and primacy of the ut pictura theatrum over the ut pictura poesis, though the former has unfairly been considered an epiphenomenon. Its purpose is to show the coherence and continuity of dramatic imitatio over two centuries, from the Italian Renaissance (1550) to French classicism, in a historical and theoretical perspective drawing on art history, history of theatre and aesthetics. The comparison between both arts is chiefly based on a series of topoi from Aristotle’s Poetics, commented upon by Aristotelian exegeses as well as treatises on painting and on theatre. Far from being mere rhetorical figures, these loci are at the heart of the aesthetic debate (idealism, hierarchy of genres, the rule of the three unities, the expression and communication of passions, the actor’s way of playing…), on which this history of the ut pictura theatrum casts new light.
