The Victory of Antenor over Valesius, King of the Illyrians

1650
Fresco
Villa Selvatico Emo Capodilista, Battaglia Terme

The third scene of the fresco cycle in the transept hall of the villa, The Victory of Antenor over Valesius, King of the Illyrians, appears more agitated than the first two, as the artist has skillfully managed to suggest the violence of the conflict through the horses excited by the battle.
