We are grateful to Maria Rosaria Nappi for suggesting the attribution of the present painting. Born into a family of artists in Brussels specializes as a landscaper, especially winter landscape and fires cities like the one presented here. Often he articulates themes of classicism adapting them to contemporary architectural settings, taking as a reference, among others, the monuments of the city of Anversa, like its cathedral. The fire of Troy has been several time the starting point for the realization of light dark and suggestive effects of light. Here we see in the foreground the flight of the Aeneas' family that his shoulders the father also and the small Ascanium that supports a small statue referring to the ancestors proctetors of the fireplace and the family, near the Cretan wife, around buildings in flames and in the background the reference to the history of the defeat or the entrance of the horse in which tha achei were hidden.
