Reconciliation of the Houses of Montague and Capulet, (painting)
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 21
Exhibited in Great Exhibition at Paris, 1855. From Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Act 5th, Scene 3d. [P. 5.] "Capulet. 'O brother Montague, give me thy hand./ This is my daughter's jointure, for no more/can I demand./ Montague. But I can give thee more./ For I will raise her statue in pure gold./ That, while Verona by that name is known,/ there shall be no figure at that rate be set,/ as that of true and faithful Juliet./ Capulet. As rich shall Romeo by his lady lie;/ poor sacrafices of our enmity./ Prince. A glooming peace this morningwith it brings;/ the sun for sorrow will not show his head./ Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;/ some shall be pardon'd, and some punished./ For never was a story of more woe,/ than this of Juliet and Romeo." [P. 6.]
