The Story of Griselda, Part II: Exile

Date: about 1494
Medium: Oil with some tempera on wood
Dimensions: 61.6 x 154.3 cm
Acquisition credit: Bought, 1874

This painting is the second part of a set of works illustrating the last story of Boccaccio's 'Decameron' (see also 'The Story of Patient Griselda' Parts I and III). They may have been let into the wainscoting of a room, or have decorated 'spalliere'.

The scene depicts the marquis putting Griselda's obedience to the test by giving her baby to a servant, and making her believe it is to be killed. The marquis pretends to dissolve the marriage, and instructs her to return to her father's house.

On loan to the exhibition 'Roma e Siena. Un Legame. Raffaello, Caravaggio e I Protagonisti Senesi' at Palazzo Squarcialupi, Siena from November 2005 to March 2006.
