As described by the roman historian livy (1st century bc), the youthful massiva was the nephew of a prince of numidia in present-day algeria who had supported scipio africanus (a roman general so known because of his conquests in north africa) and the romans in battle. The young massiva was captured by the romans in 209 bc and brought before scipio. When scipio learned the youth's identity, he sent him back to his uncle laden with gifts. Tiepolo, the greatest italian history painter of the 18th century, combines dramatic gestures, grand scale, and classical architecture to tell his story of generosity and statesmanship. .Tallenge store has brought you this beautiful piece of art on a high quality 240 gsm 100% cotton canvas with gloss finish.
