Venus healing Aeneas

1805 - 1810. Oil on canvas. Not on display

Badly wounded during his combat with Turnus, Aeneas is secretly visited by his mother Venus who comes to his aid. While the hero is attended by the elderly Iapis, the goddess looks on, concealed among dark clouds so as not to be seen. After this divine intervention Aeneas went on to kill his adversary, thus bringing to an end the epic of the Achaeans against the Trojans recounted in The Aeneid.
