The Rape of Europa

The Intriguing History of Titian’s Masterpiece

Charles FitzRoy

The Rape of Europa is one Titian’s great masterpieces, a work charged with eroticism and classical mystique as compelling as the painting itself.

Charles FitzRoy weaves a unique account of its history and the painting’s movement following the rise and fall of the countries in which it has been housed.

The story ranges from its arrival at the court of Philip II of Spain, through French revolution and English intrigue, to its final move to America, engineered by the brilliant but devious Bernard Berenson.

This is the tale of how Titian’s masterpiece has captivated kings, nobles, artists, and lovers alike over four centuries since its conception and continues to do so today.
