Footnotes

  • The cassone was a piece of trophy furniture in mediaeval Italy which was given to the bride during her wedding by her parents. They were at the height of fashion in the late 15th century when a number of artists in Siena and Florence specialized in painting cassone panels. Often in the 19th century the cassone itself was discarded, the painted panel being regarded as an autonomous work of art by the 19th century. By the nature of their function the use of religious subjects was unusual and the range of subjects deemed suitable was usually taken from ancient history, such as the story of Scipio Africanus, based on Petrarch's Africa, or from poems or novelle of recent Italian fiction.
