  • About the work

Technique: lithography;

Year: between 1989 and 1990;

This work, of the Italian master Salvatore Fiume, is part of the unpublished series of 15 example, illustrating the Aeneid and realized, between 1989 and 1990. Obtained and printed with a lithographic process, it is taken from the original painting made with oil colours. Here is represented an episode from the second book of the poem, in which Aeneas narrates the deception of the horse and the destruction of Troy by the Greeks. The spectator, who takes the point of view of those on the walls, sees in front of him a landscape of destruction and chaos. The protagonist is the horse, depicted with simple and soft shapes. The profiles of the figures and objects are not defined, but blurred. Also in this work we can see the influence of the exotic world on artist's production, through the use of warm colors. Ocher, red and orange in contrast with the blue and yellow of the sky, create an evocative and mythical atmosphere. The work is numbered and has the autograph signature in the lower right corner. On the back, to guarantee authenticity, it presents the stamp declaring the execution technique and the author signature. Edition 990/999.
