Henri Fantin Latour - Duo des Troyens (2e planche)

 
 
description

Summary

Dido sits on a marble bench to which a semi-circular marble wall serves as a backrest. Aeneas, on his knees at her feet, looks at her tenderly. On the right, above the two lovers and behind the bench, is a tree. In the middle of the waters, is a small round temple, surrounded by columns. To the left, in the foreground, on the beach, is the helmet and shield of Aeneas. The moon, which can be seen in the middle of the sky, illuminates the whole scene. (Berlioz, the Trojans at Carthage, act II, scene 2)
