Created at the end of the 1500s, this print stylistically marks the end of Renaissance art. Barocciâ€™s swirling, emotional composition and the intensity of Agostinoâ€™s engraved network of lines prefigure the rise of Baroque art in the 1600s. However, ancient legends such as the Trojan War, revived and popularized during the Renaissance, continued to inspire artists for centuries to come. Here, Aeneas carries his elderly father Anchises, who in turn rescues small statues of their household gods while the city of Troy burns. Both acts stress the menâ€™s virtuous dedication to home and family. Aeneasâ€™s young son Ascanius and his wife Creusa flee with them, but Creusaâ€™s separation from the group alludes to her fate: she falls behind and is lost as the Greeks invade the city.
