Description

The protagonist of the canvas is Lucrezia Romana, who, forced to betray her husband by force, chose suicide in the face of the guilt imposed on her by fate. This figure, emblematic of heroic virtue, is rendered with effective chromatic and formal synthesis, charged with echoes of Caravaggesque innovations and characterized by a strong pathos.
