  • Painting Description

    "The Story of Nastagio degli Onesti (second episode)" is a painting by the Italian Renaissance master Sandro Botticelli, created around 1483. This artwork is part of a series of four panels that depict scenes from the "Decameron," a collection of novellas by the 14th-century Italian author Giovanni Boccaccio. The series was commissioned by Lorenzo the Magnificent of the Medici family, for the occasion of the marriage of Giannozzo Pucci and Lucrezia Bini in 1483.

    The second episode in the series illustrates the continuation of the story of Nastagio degli Onesti, a young nobleman from Ravenna who, after being spurned by the woman he loves, retreats to the woods in despair. There, he witnesses a horrifying scene: a naked woman being chased and eventually killed by a knight and his dogs, only to rise again and be subjected to the same cruel fate in an eternal cycle of punishment. This gruesome spectacle is a representation of divine justice, as the woman had previously rejected the knight's love, driving him to suicide.

    Botticelli's painting captures the moment of the chase with dramatic intensity. The composition is dynamic, with the figures arranged diagonally across the panel, leading the viewer's eye through the scene. The lush forest setting is depicted with meticulous attention to detail, characteristic of Botticelli's style, and serves as a stark contrast to the violence taking place within it.

    The artwork is notable for its moral and didactic message, as well as its masterful execution. It reflects the humanist interests of the time, where classical themes were revived with a contemporary moralizing purpose. The series of paintings was intended to convey a lesson about the consequences of spurning love and the virtues of patience and perseverance.

    "The Story of Nastagio degli Onesti (second episode)" is a significant work within Botticelli's oeuvre, exemplifying the artist's ability to blend narrative storytelling with exquisite craftsmanship. The painting is housed in the Prado Museum in Madrid, Spain, along with the other three panels of the series, where it continues to be admired for its artistic and historical value.
