Iliade – Giambattista Tiepolo – Main House

Briseis, Achille’s slave, is taken away forcedly from her tent to be introduced to her new owner: the king Agamemnon, who is waiting for her in a majestic position as a despot; Achilles, taken by anger, for his slave’s kidnapping, flings himself against Agamemnon but is held back by his hair by Minerva, goddess of war and knowledge descended from the sky; Achilles, sad, is comforted by his mother Tetis.
The rural landscape of last wall is due to Giandomenico. On the ceiling is reproduced. Minerva
