This is a reproduction of "The Flight of Aeneas from Troy" of 1598 by Frederico Barocci. The artist was seventy-two when he painted this composition for Cardinale della Rovere. It was gifted to Cardinale Scipione before 1613 when it enetered the Borghese collection. The work displayed Barocci's ability to portray natural movement as well as a natural anti-heroic depiction of human delicacy. The scene is from Greco-Roman mythology showing the escape of Aeneas, his father, wife and son from the destruction of the city of Troy. Barocci had been born in Urbino as Federico Fiori, Il Baroccio, the ox-cart, was a nick-name. He died in 1612 at the age of about eighty-six years.
