  1. 1. Wedding in European paintings
  2. 2. … a wedding by Veronese One of the world’s greatest (in every sense) paintings
  3. 3. On the third day there was a marriage at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there; Jesus also was invited to the marriage, with his disciples. When the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said to him, "They have no wine." And Jesus said to her, "O woman, what have you to do with me? My hour has not yet come." His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you." John.2 Verses 1 to 11.
  4. 4. Sitting in the place of honor under a canopy decorated with garlands, the bride is sad; there is no more wine. To her left, her father consoles her. To her right, the groom bows his head. A sense of shame is read on the faces of parents and in-laws, while a relative looks at the wine list. Jesus' mother turns to a servant to give him instructions. Sitting to her left in front of empty jars, Jesus discreetly makes a sign. And behold, oh miracle, the water poured into the jars turns red. Paolo Veronese Les Noces de Cana The Marriage Feast at Cana 1562-1563 Musée du Louvre, Paris
  5. 5. … three famous weddings from classical mythology Of the three great mythical weddings, the first in chronological order was that of Hippodame and Pirithous
  6. 6. When Pirithous married Hippodame, the couple invited centaurs to the feast. Unfortunately, passions of the centaur Eurytus became inflamed by drink ... Ovid, Metamorphoses, book Xii, 219-225 "(...) For thy breast, Eurytus, most savage of the savage Centaurs, is inflamed as much with wine as with seeing the maiden; and drunkenness, redoubled by lust, holds sway over thee (...)“.
  7. 7. a wedding gone wrong ... on the large carpets laid out for the wedding feast, centaurs are still abducting women, eyes being gouged out, weapons as the leg of a table, the antlers of a stag and a chandelier, the bride partially naked in a blue robe with Eurytion grabbing her hair; ... all the commotion seems superfluous to the centaur couple embracing: Hylonome, kisses her lover Cyllarus as he dies from a javelin wound (the tragic love story of the two centaurs). This is definitely a wedding to remember, if you survived it. Piero di Cosimo Battle of Lapiths and Centaurs, The Fight between Lapiths and Centaurs Le Combat des Centaures et des Lapithes 1500-1515 National Gallery, London
  8. 8. The fair heroine swoons, as she leans backward toward Theseus while still in the clutches of the bearded Eurytus … Theseus´s two strong, young friends leap boldly to his assistance, toppling wine and fruit from the table of the wedding feast. Peter Paul Rubens The Rape of Hippodame, Lapiths and Centaurs L’enlèvement d’Hippodamie, Lapithes et Centaures 1636-1638 Museo Nacional del Prado, Madrid
  9. 9. Andromeda’s parents were so delighted at their daughter’s rescue that she, who had already been promised in marriage to Phineus, was quickly married instead to Perseus. At the wedding feast, Phineus and his friends were understandably rather miffed, and a violent quarrel broke out between them and Perseus. As happens at the most memorable of weddings, this turned seriously nasty when weapons came out and bodies started to fall. The solution for Perseus was to brandish the head of Medusa and turn Phineus and his friends into cold statuary. Annibale Carracci and Domenichino (Domenico Zampieri) Perseus and Phineas Persée et Phinée 1604-1606 Palazzo Farnese, Rome
  10. 10. A wedding that set up the beauty contest between Juno, Venus and Minerva in the Judgement of Paris. The wedding of Thetis, sea nymph and spinster of this parish, and Peleus, king of Phthia and bachelor of that parish, was celebrated with a great feast on Mount Pelion attended by most of the gods but … Eris, the goddess of discord, had not been invited, and she suddenly appeared with her golden apple (Beware of golden apples at weddings.) Edward Burne-Jones The Feast of Peleus La fête de Pélée 1872-1881 Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, Birmingham
  11. 11. A group of nymphs making music, Mercury, with his winged hat, Vulcan drains the last dregs of wine from a pitcher, Pan, large ears, little horns, goatee beard and his Pan pipes ... they seem to be having a good time and … the uninvited Eris flies away from the party (… and Zeus with the apple in his hand, and Venus, Juno and Minerva believed that they had a claim to the fruit) Cornelis van Haarlem The Wedding of Peleus and Thetis Mariage de Pélée et Thétis 1593 Frans Hals Museum, Haarlem

  13. 13. The eighth story told on the fifth day of Boccaccio’s Decameron ... Nastagio degli Onesti, a knight from Ravenna, whose beloved initially refused to marry him, finally weds her after all. First of all, however, he must remind her of the eternal agony in hell of another merciless woman, one who had also refused marriage ...

There is no evidence to recognize that. He is not at his young wife's side. ... The bride and groom do not seem to be the main subject of the scene. Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Pieter Brueghel l'Ancien The Peasant Wedding Le Repas de noce 1567 Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna
  15. 15. Saint Cecilia’s wedding … an unusual event for the fact that the saint told her husband that he wasn’t to attempt to consummate their marriage. The Golden Legend of Jacobus de Voragine: ..."and then she said to him: I have an angel that loveth me, which ever keepeth my body whether I sleep or wake, and if he may find that ye touch my body by villainy, or foul and polluted love, certainly he shall anon slay you, and so should ye lose the flower of your youth. And if so be that thou love me in holy love and cleanness, he shall love thee as he loveth me and shall show to thee his grace." Francesco Francia Legend of Saints Cecilia and Valerian, Scene 1 Le Mariage de sainte Cécile et saint Valérien 1504-1506 Oratory of St Cecilia, San Giacomo Maggiore, Bologna

  17. 17. A marriage of convenience ... A beautiful young woman has just married an ugly, fat man. From the side he looks like a pig, but … he is rich. Wearing a rather worn dress coat, the bride´s father follows the procession with an expression of complacency, in his face we can see the happiness of a man who has just made a good business deal.
