Jupiter and Antiope

Jupiter and Antiope is a painting of unknown date, showing Jupiter and Antiope. On the reverse is a sketch of a young woman. It is possibly attributed to Jacques-Louis David, though the attribution is difficult since David disowned most of the works he produced as a young man.

David gave this painting to his cousin Marie-Françoise Baudry and her husband. Her grandson Adolphe Guillon left it to the musée de Sens on his death in 1896 where it is now held. It was published in 1911 by Charles Saunier.
