he Baptism Of Clorinda - French School Of The 17th c.,

Warrior for Muslims, Clorinde falls madly in love with Tancrède, a Christian knight. During the siege of Jerusalem, Clorinde, wearing a mask, is not recognized by her lover Tancrede who mortally wounds her. As he takes her helmet off, Tancrède realizes his fatal error. That is when, in an ultimate act of love, Clorinde converts to Christianity.
This subject, wonderfully interpreted by this 17th-century artist, is taken from "The Jerusalem delivered".
