Art of the Aeneid

An entire family of art has been created from the Aeneid. From ancient times until the present, but especially during the neo-classical period, painters, sculptors, and other artists have created works based on Vergil's imagery-filled poem. We will fill this page with art work as we delve into the creative world sparked by Virgil.
