EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a mesmerizing scene from the medieval era, featuring "Ms 2617 The scribe dedicating La Teseida to an unknown young woman" by Giovanni Boccaccio. Created in 1340-41 on vellum by the French School of the 14th century, this artwork is housed in the Osterreichische Nationalbibliothek in Vienna, Austria. The image depicts a moment of profound intimacy and admiration as a scribe dedicates his work, La Teseida, to an enigmatic young woman. Bathed in soft candlelight within a lavishly decorated bedroom, their connection transcends time and space. The manuscript itself is adorned with intricate historiated initials and elaborate gothic motifs that speak to its significance. As we delve into this enchanting composition, we are transported back to an era where courtly love reigned supreme. The scribe's scholarly demeanor hints at his dedication to literature and poetry while donning a henin headdress that adds an air of sophistication. Meanwhile, the mysterious young woman veiled in romance gazes upon him with affectionate eyes. La Teseida holds twelve cantos of poetic brilliance translated from Italian into French—a testament to its enduring allure across borders. This photograph captures not only the artistry behind medieval manuscripts but also evokes emotions associated with courteous love and longing. Through Bridgeman Images' lens, we are given access to this extraordinary piece from The Stapleton Collection—allowing
