The Death of Brutus

Posted by on Thursday, January 14, 2021 Under: Art


Death of the Consul Lucius Junius Brutus in a duel with Aruns by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo.

After usurping the last king of Rome Tarquinius Superbus (R. 535-510 BCE), Lucius Junius Brutus founded the Roman Republic. Here, his death is depicted at the hands of his cousin Arruns Tarquinius, the second son of the usurped king, when they fought in single combat during the Battle of Silva Arsia and simultaneously speared each other to death.
