[The rape of Europa]

  • ca. 1933-ca. 1943
  • The subject of Card 209, "the Rape of Europa," reaches back to ancient times and has remained, since its first appearance on attic Greek vases, a persistent motif in western art for more than two and a half thousand years. This Europa, painted by Josef Pieper, surely has German blood in her veins.
