The Rape of Europa: The Intriguing History of Titian's Masterpiece
Charles FitzRoy’s fascinating book traces the complicated history of one of Titian’s poesie paintings, originally painted for Philip II, The Rape of Europa. The history of this painting as it passes from hand to hand, from royals to nobles to industrial magnates, serves as the perfect illustration of the shifting of economic clout through the centuries, of the mechanics of power. The intriguing account of this seemingly unique story also reifies for the reader the strange vulnerability of the most powerful of paintings.
‘An absorbing account of how a single, highly coveted artefact embodies the zigzags of political power, economic clout and cultural ambition through succeeding ages’ Literary Review.
