Tournament Scene (detail)

Fresco sinopia
Palazzo Ducale, Mantua

This sinopia represents a second stage in the evolution of a recently discovered cycle by Pisanello, which has come down to us in rather ruinous condition. Pisanello made the wall drawings after life studies. In this case little remains of the actual painting which originally consisted of an array of chivalric legends, with battles and tournaments.
