Another beautiful painting I saw from my last trip to the Metropolitan Museum. This painting is by Liberale da Verona entitled Scene from a Novella and was painted in Siena between 1467 and 1476. It is a rare secular painting from the Italian renaissance, as such a huge proportion of paintings were of the life of Christ, with portraiture a distant second. The painting depicts a scene from a now-lost novel about two lovers. There is a matching panel in which the two lovers are playing chess.
