Jacob Matham Netherlandish • 1571–1631 Jupiter and Europa (after Hendrick Goltzius) Engraving • ca. 1590 Taking the form of a beautiful white bull, Jupiter set about wooing Europa amidst her herd of cattle. Her initial apprehension towards the beast’s attentions having eventually subsided, Europa straddled the bull, not realizing his true form. Jupiter walked her along the shoreline and then further and further out into the sea, eventually carrying her away to the island of Crete.
