Capital with Scene of a Duel


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This capital, along with its companion (Walters 27.304), portrays a test of justice, perhaps inspired by popular literature of the time. On this piece, two combatants attempt, through a duel, to prove or disprove the virtue of a woman accused of adultery shown on the left side of the capital. The northern Spanish style of the two capitals is demonstrated by the large, sharply chiseled heads and noses of the figures.
