Anchias Fleeing Troy with His Father and Son

Brush and gray and black ink, gray washes, 400 x 300 mm
Private collection

This comparatively large drawing is part of a series of fifty illustrating Livy's epic history of Rome, "Ab urbe condita". The series has been preserved intact along with a table of contents compiled by Bramer himself. The scene depicting Aeneas fleeing Troy with his father, Anchises, and his son, Ascanius, is the first drawing in the series.
