The Rape of Europa is one of Titian s great masterpieces, a work charged with eroticism and classical mystique behind which lies a tale as compelling as the painting itself. Here 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 place at the court of King Philip II of Spain, through French revolution and English intrigue, to its final move to America, engineered by the brilliant but devious art historian Bernard Berenson. This is the tale of how Titian s masterpiece has captivated kings, nobles, artists, and lovers alike for over four centuries since its conception and continues to do so today.

Product Description:

Rape of Europa

Review:

This book is not just the history of one of the world's greatest paintings; it brings to life all the stages of its long journey from Venice through Spain, France and England and finally to Mrs Isabella Stewart Gardner's glorious Fenway Museum in Boston - I was fascinated every inch of the way
- John Julius Norwich
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
Takes the reader from the inbred, art-loving Spanish royals of the 16th century to the 500-piece art collection of the dissolute Duke of Orleans who was to lose it - and his head - during the French Revolution, to the wealthy art-buyers of 19th century Britain. -- - Independent
