Depicting Zeus in the form of a bull, carrying a young woman off to the island of Crete, Titian's 1560-62 painting The Rape of Europa is one of the artist's most sensual and accomplished works. In addition to relating how the piece was commissioned as a wedding present for Charles I and his French queen Henrietta Maria—later passing through the hands of such collectors as the Duke of Orleans and Isabella Stewart Gardner—the author of Return of the King charts the masterpiece's influence on later artists, and uses its history to examine four centuries of changing tastes in the international art trade.
