Creator

Blanco Prieto, Francisco

Date

2000 c.

Description

Painting on wood made with a mixed technique that represents a medieval courtship scene inspired by La Celestina.
The author writes about the image: "To seduce the beloved the help of the procuress was not enough. It was necessary to reach the dreamy lattice where she awaited the arrival of her lover. Celestina facilitated the encounter of two in-love souls and Melibea open her arms to receive Calisto in the shadows of her bedroom."
