  • Product description

    “Hercules at the Crossroads” after the original engraving by Albrecht Durer (1471-1528) depicts Hercules in his classic headdress pinning a woman personifying virtue against a tree with a staff plucked from the ground. Virtue holds a hewn club over her head, attempting to attack a seated woman who represents pleasure. Pleasure sits naked on the ground next to a satyr, a symbol of lust and imprudent behavior. Juxtapositions of wilderness and civilization, reflective of the contrast between pleasure and virtue, can be noticed throughout the composition of this engraving.


    This engraving is one of hundreds of pieces of art that are available at our location in Grandview! Come in today and see the full collection.
