Our print features a reproduction of a beautifully preserved drawing by Fragonard. It illustrates a scene from canto 18 of Torquato Tasso's epic poem Jerusalem Delivered, published in 1581. In this scene, Rinaldo, a Christian knight on his way to the Holy Land, is detained by the pagan enchantress Armida until two of his fellow knights break the spell. Fragonard's drawing imagines the decisive moment of Rinaldo's victory, as he brandishes his sword overhead in the act of chopping down Armida's massive myrtle tree, thereby dispelling its enchantments. This sheet was made soon after Fragonard returned to Paris after having spent five years in Rome.
