Francesco Hayez

Shown at the Brera in 1820 with the title Pietro Rossi, lord of Parma, despoiled of his estates by the Scaligers, lords of Verona, while sent to defend the castle of Pontremoli and to take command of the Venetian army, which was due to move against his enemies, his wife and two daughters tearfully begging him to refuse the command, this picture was hailed as a manifesto of Romantic painting for introducing the novelty of a modern historical theme.
