In this coloured lithograph, Xerxes stands on the edge of a cliff pointing angrily at the sea. He wars a red robe with gold trim and a gold helmet; he has a long black beard, a yellow under-garment like a dress, and seems to be barefoot. Behind him are three soldiers, the nearest of whom wears a helmet. There’s a fok of lightning in the sky behind him and white plumes of froth from the waves.
Thank you for visiting.
