This print reproduces a lost painting and represents a Gothic scene of Fuseli’s invention. An evil wizard, watches over an imprisoned maiden and an enchanted knight (Percival). Fuseli’s painting of the succeeding action, with Percival woken, appears in Room 3. The velvety qualities of mezzotint were seen as peculiarly appropriate to Gothic subjects of this sort.

Cette copie reproduit une peinture perdue et reprĂ©sente une scène gothique de l’invention de Fuseli. Un magicien malĂ©fique, veille sur une jeune fille emprisonnĂ©e et un chevalier enchantĂ© (Percival). La peinture de Fuseli de l’action suivante, avec Percival rĂ©veillĂ©, apparaĂ®t dans la salle 3. Les qualitĂ©s veloutĂ©es de la mezzotint Ă©taient perçues comme particulièrement propres aux sujets gothiques de ce genre.
