グイド・カヴァルカンティの亡霊に出会うテオドーレ Theodore Meets in the Wood the Spectre of His Ancestor Guido Cavalcanti

作品解説

 フュースリはイギリスで活躍したスイス人画家で、本作は彼の重要な初期作品です。主題は、17世紀イギリス人の詩人ジョン・ドライデンがボッカチオの『デカメロン』中の一話を翻案した詩、「テオドーレとホノーリア」に基づいています。画面左下の人物が身分違いのホノーリアに失恋した青年テオドーレです。彼はここで、以前同じ女性に冷たくあしらわれ自殺したグイド・カヴァルカンティの亡霊が、馬に乗り剣をかかげ、裸のホノーリアに犬をけしかけて復讐する場面に出くわしています。こうした奇怪な物語に対する興味や、そのおどろおどろしく劇的な表現は、フュースリのロマン主義的な感性を如実に表したものと言えるでしょう。(出典: 展示室作品解説パネル)

Theodore Meets in the Wood the Spectre of His Ancestor Guido Cavalcanti

Painted two years after the famous The Nightmare, this work can be considered one of the greatest of his early works. Füssli frequently quoted from the works of such British authors as Shakespeare, and this work draws its inspiration from Dryden's poem Theodore and Honoria, an adaptation of the "Story of Nastagio degli Onesti" from Boccacio's Decameron. The scene from Theodore and Honoria, shown here, recounts the story of Theodore, a young man from Ravenna, who, spurned by a cool reception from his beloved Honoria, sets out to walk through the forests on the edge of Ravenna. There he meets the specter of the suicide Guido Cavalcanti, who had also been coolly received by his lover. Guido sets ferocious dogs to attack his naked, fleeing lover. Here Füssli turns to the story by Boccacio that was the basis for Dryden's poem, creating a particularly striking image through Dryden's heightened drama and the use of solid figural types that were based on his study of antique sculpture. This work was created under a commission from the third Earl of Orford, George Walpole, for the decoration of his Norfolk estate, Horton Hall. It descended through the generations of the family, and was kept at Horton Hall until recent years. (Source: Masterpieces of the National Museum of Western Art, Tokyo, 2009, cat. no.57)
