Southampton City Art Gallery,
Southamption, England
This is perhaps the most tender scene in Romeo and Juliet and Dicksee paints it as such. In this scene Romeo and Juliet are parting after their first night together as man and wife. Romeo has killed Juliet's cousin and if he is found in Verona once the sun rises he will be killed. He decides to run to a neighboring town until it is safe to return for Juliet.
