Summary

  • The unfinished frescoes by Antonio Pisanello in the Ducal Palace in Mantua have intrigued and puzzled art historians since their rediscovery in the 1960s. In this extensive discussion, Woods-Marsden (art history, UCLA) identifies the frescoes as a coherent cycle depicting an episode from the prose Lancelot, the 13th century French Arthurian romance. Dating the cycle c. 1447-48, she argues for Lodovico Gonzaga, ruler of Mantua, as commissioner, and suggests that the work documents this outstanding patron's early intentions and ambitions. Examining and crossing a range of fields (anthropology, psychology, literature, and art) and texts (photography, travel literature, television programs, and museum exhibitions), Torgovnick (English, Duke U.) shows how Western ideas of the primitive have served as a vehicle to control societies outside the West and to suppress women and minorities within it.
