This full page painted illustration from the sole surviving English manuscript of the tale depicts the moment when Lady Bertilak first attempts to seduce Gawain. A nude Gawain lies peacefully in a curtained bed while Lady Bertilak caresses him under the chin, a common medieval gesture of romantic intimacy. In the narrative, Gawain feigns sleep when he hears Lady Bertilak break with social convention and enter his curtained chamber.
Lady Bertilak in the illustration smiles coyly at the sleeping knight, who rests bound beneath his bedclothes.

Sir Orfeo, an even older work, is a classic Celtic romance adapted from the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice.
