Comment
Bartsch called this work Jupiter and Antiope. For the discussion of the subject, see Bohlin. Annibale Carracci already made a painting of the subject in c. 1588, today in the Uffizi. Bohn in TIB explained that a drawing by Agostino Carracci in the Albertina, inv. no. 2113, either supplied Annibale's concept for this print, but was more possibly inspired by it.
