Gerard de Lairesse (1641-1711)

[Antique print, etching, Lairesse] Aeneas and the Cumaean Sybil, published ca. 1670.

A scene inspired by Virgil’s Aeneid (VI) shows Aeneas holding the hand of the Cumaean Sybil, holding in his hand the golden branch, preparing himself to enter the world of the dead, led by Sybil. They have left behind already Cerber – a three-headed dog visible under the portal in the distance – and the god-river holding two vases from which the water of the infernal rivers come out: the Achéron and the Cocytus.
