Aeneas, Anchises and Ascanius, Artus Quellinus (I) (follower of), c. 1660

marble (rock), h 47.5cm × w 37cm More details

The monogram A.V.F. on this relief has yet to be identified. The style of the piece, however, points to an artist strongly influenced by Artus Quellinus. The depiction is derived from Raphael’s famous fresco in the Vatican depicting Aeneas rescuing his young son Ascanius and his aged father, Anchises, from the city of Troy, which had been captured by the Greeks.
