EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print by Raphael, we are transported to the ancient world of Roman mythology. Titled "Young Man Carrying an Old Man on His Back (Aeneas and Anchises)" the artwork depicts a powerful scene from Virgil's epic poem, the Aeneid. The central figures in the composition are Aeneas, a Trojan hero, and his father Anchises. As they flee their burning city during the infamous Trojan War, Aeneas carries his elderly father on his back with unwavering strength and determination. This act symbolizes filial piety and serves as a reminder of the sacrifices made for family and duty. Raphael's masterful use of graphic arts brings this mythological tale to life. The intricate details in their muscular bodies showcase both physical prowess and emotional depth. The artist's choice to depict them nude adds vulnerability to their characters while emphasizing their heroic nature. This print is part of the Albertina collection in Vienna, where it continues to inspire viewers with its timeless beauty. It serves as a testament to Raphael's genius as one of Italy's greatest Renaissance artists. With its rich symbolism rooted in Greek mythology and Virgilian literature, this artwork invites us into a world where legends come alive through brushstrokes. It reminds us that even amidst chaos and destruction, love can prevail – just like Aeneas carrying Anchises on his back through fire and turmoil towards a brighter future.
