Romulus and Remus

Posted by on Tuesday, March 31, 2020 Under: Art



An image depicting two consecutive events taking place on the bank of the Tiber: Romulus and Remus, the mythical founders of Rome, are being suckled by a wolf while being discovered by the shepherd Faustulus. Above that, Faustulus is giving the infants to his wife Laurentia as the two go on to adopt the twins. The image was drawn in 1480 by the Master of the White Inscriptions and is currently housed at the British Library.
