Creusa appearing to Aeneas
Rare mezzotint engraved by Valentine Green after Maria Cosway.
Aeneas tries to put his arms around Cerusa.
In the lower left are the flames of Troy burning.
Published 1781 in London.
Original antique print
This mezzotint shows signs of age and use. In the lower left and upper right are long creases.
In the lower margin is smudging and creases. Tiny piece of upper left corner is missing.
Even though the condition is lacking, this is an extraordinary theme for a mezzotint.
