Finding the name of a painting?

Asked by tommytree (16points) June 20th, 2009

I was in Rome a few weeks ago and when in Capitoline Museum I saw an unfinished painting with a woman surrounded by shouting people, I think it was the bottom left corner that was unfinished. I have been trying to find its name and the name of the painter but I can’t seem to do so. Does anyone here have any idea of what it is?

Not nearly enough information. Period, style, size? From what you tell us it could be a pic from Dr. Phil’s show.

I know I sound flippant but there are a LOT of classical paintings in Rome.

Well I did say the place, how it looks and a rather key defect. Other then that all I can say is 1500s for the time.

Do you remember what she’s wearing(colour), any buildings around them?

She was wearing a white toga type thing where as most of the other people in the scene were in darker brown clothes, though I cant be shore of there being no light clothes on others. And I think it was at night, the unfinished part was just the canvas with a pew brush marks.

Is it this one? painting by Palma il Vecchio (Christ and the Adulteress) (See the first paragraph of the linked article)

“The Rape of the Sabine Women” by Cavalier d’Arpino kind of matches that description

No its not that one, it is painted on canvas rather the a fresco. And I think its in the open air, is is wide and the people sort of surround her.
