The Abduction Of Europe - Original Drawing on paper in red chalk

18th century

About

The Abduction Of Europe is an original artwork realized by an artist of the 18th-century Bolognese school. Drawing on paper in red chalk. The artwork represents the famous mythological scene narrated in the Metamorphoses by the ancient Roman poet Ovid: the god Jupiter, who disguised himself as a white bull in order to seduce the princess Europa, led her away from her companions and carried her across the sea on the distant land that would eventually bear her name. Some folds on sheet and signs of time, otherwise good conditions. This artwork is shipped from Italy. Under existing legislation, any artwork in Italy created over 70 years ago by an artist who has died requires a licence for export regardless of the work’s market price. The shipping may require additional handling days to require the licence according to the final destination of the artwork.
