Othello and Desdemona, after Hildebrandt, (painting)
Hildebrandt (copy after)
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 2
One of the few great conceptions of the scene, where the jealous Moor charges the loving Desdemona with infidelity. The passion of the revengeful Othello, the astonishment of the wronged, yet still adoring Desdemona--the curiosity of the Brabantio, are all rendered with wonderful force and fidelity. It rivets the attention of the beholder in a singular manner. This work is by a celebrated Dusseldorf artist. [P. 57.]
