Abstract:
A scene from Horace Walpole's Gothic novel The castle of Otranto, with the characters Frederic and Hippolita shown full-length at center, the latter wearing a pink gown. Frederic, who wears a sword at his side and whose feathered cap has fallen to the floor, kneels in front of the standing Hippolita and looks up at her, holding her right hand; she looks down at him tenderly, her left hand at her breast. A statue on a pedestal stands besides the pair on the right; an arched window and a column are in the background on the left. A man, probably Manfred, lurks in the shadows; he carries a dagger(?) and peeks out from behind the column.
