Our art Boccaccio's Decameron

We have illustrated another article for The New Yorker magazine, issue November 11, 2013. We have created an artwork on Giovanni Boccaccio's Decameron, "The story of Peronella" told by Filostrato. We looked at the frescoes and paintings of the Renaissance. Medium: acrylic and digital, full color page. The wonderful article "RENAISSANCE MAN " by JOAN ACOCELLA is about a new translation of Boccaccio’s Decameron. You can read the article online: www.newyorker.com "A famous tribute to ingenuity is the story of Peronella, told by Filostrato. Peronella spins wool for a living, and her husband is a stonemason. She is pretty, and soon she has a lover, Giannello. One morning after the husband has gone to work, Peronella and Giannello are enjoying each other’s company when suddenly the husband returns. There is a barrel in the house, and Peronella tells Giannello to hide in it. When the husband enters, she begins loudly berating him: What’s the story here? Why have you come back home so early like this? It seems to me, seeing you there with your tools in your hands, that you want to take the day off. If you carry on like this, how are we going to live? Where are we supposed to get our bread from?" www.newyorker.com
