Tiziano Vecillio was a high Italian renaissance painter born to a family of moderate means in 1488 and living in the Venice mountains. He received his tutelage through the workshop of Giovanni Bellini; the most prominent artist in 15th century Venice.
The Rape of Europa was painted by Tiziano Vecillio known as Titian sometime during the period of 1559 to 1562 for the King of Spain Phillip II. It was certainly one of the most jovial of his poetic works. The painting depicts a completely surprised Europa arms and legs flailing as she is carried away on Jupiter's back as he is disguised as an ornamented white bull while a little chubby and nude boy riding the back of a dolphin appears to be mocking her.
Meanwhile in the sky are cupids follow the happy scene. The clear blue sky combined with a stormy sky is the Venetian's subtle hint of conflict taking place between the two lovers. Europa is portrayed as demure and resistant, weak with desire and frightened beneath a contrasting sky of opposites both calm and turbulent. Cupids one below and two above are transfixed as they watch the tension between Europa and Jupiter.
The bull's eye was painted by Titan to be unavoidably leering and impossible to avoid is the most painted eye of human or animal in Western art. It is spellbinding and dares the viewer not to stare back!
