Miracle of the Jealous Husband
|Location||Scuola del Santo, Padua|
It portrays a man stabbing his wife after she has been unjustly accused of adultery. When the man discovers the truth, he begs for pardon to St. Anthony, who resuscitates the woman (this scene is portrayed in smaller size on the right). The idyllic background is inspired by Giorgione's paintings.
The young Titian, described the volume of the wife's raised arm, in the center of the action, by actually sculpting it in relief rather than describing it illusionistically.
