Description

Madonna Pietra degli Scrovigni by Marie Spartali Stillman (1844-1927), Walker Art Gallery.

This painting takes its title from the translation of two poems by Dante Alighieri (1265-1321). Stillman invents the details of her costume, such as the Victorian jewelled brooch shaped like a heart, and the glass orb. The orb reflects two figures, inviting close looking by the viewer.

Stillman presents a more ambiguous woman than the stone-hearted woman from Dante's poems. She meets our gaze directly with a gentle expression on her face. Stillman wrote a letter to the Walker Art Gallery explaining that the painting was 'jut a lady clad in green in a green stony landscape that repeats her name.' Painted in 1884.

Presented to the Walker Art Gallery in 1884.
