An exceptional masterpiece from the Italian school - ca. 1720.
Aeneas flees Troy while its burning. Aeneas is carrying his father Anchises while bystanders are witnessing the foreboding event.
Aeneas gets the full treatment in Roman mythology, most extensively in Virgil's Aeneis, in which he is featured as an ancestor of Romulus and Remus. He became the first true hero of Rome.
This was probably part of a larger work. The wooden nail is still in place in the work and was a series of smaller panels.
The wooden panel is surrounded by an 18th century gilded frame.
Origin: a very important private collection.
Carefully packaged shipment. The photos are part of the description.

Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Il venditore ha rotto il paralume prima dell' invio. Pessimo. Costo spedizione eccessivo. Consegna veloce ma in imballo ricoperto di polvere/muffa e riempito di scarti di polistirolo e giornali.Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Dear Madam, I contacted you in advance to inform you that something had broken during the packaging for which I apologized. I immediately informed catawiki and asked to cancel the purchase. You informed me and catawiki that you still wanted to receive it. Your comment is therefore below all levels. The box was indeed filled with newspaper and then? When the box left here, there was no trace of mold. What happens during shipping, I obviously have no hold on. So you should have had the item cancel what I initially suggested.
