The last pagan work that we shall view tonight is a series of four superb paintings recounting an extraordinary story, that of Nastagio degli Onesti, taken from Boccaccio's Decameron, the fifth tale of the ninth day. This tale is interesting enough to merit a quick summary. It consists of four episodes chosen by Botticelli at the request of Lorenzo the Magnificent, who wanted to give them to his godson for his marriage. These four paintings were meant to adorn the paneling of their formal salon. Later, the paintings were dispersed: three are in Madrid, and the fourth is in a private American collection. The first three paintings are very well-known, and we'll be able to show them to you, but we have nothing for the fourth one, as the collector has always refused to allow it to be photographed.
