Notes

Summary:
Painted of the adulteress at the moment when Christ writes the letters in the dirt with his hand, and the Scribes and Pharisees depart, or, concealing themselves among the columns of a portico that is represented with the most rare perspectival skill; and it is a picture filled with much erudition. The pictorial erudition that so struck Ridolfi is demonstrated in the perspective structure, yet Tintoretto did not achieve this effortlessly: x-rays have revealed errors and redrawings in the lines of the architecture, above all in the patterning of the pavement. There is a strong centrifugal movement to the scene, and its quality of space extended by light seems to prefigure the artist's trilogy of paintings of the life of St Mark.
