(b. ca. 1510, Zara, d. 1563, Venezia)
Landscape with Jupiter and Io-
Oil on canvas, 205,5 x 275,5 cm
The Hermitage, St. Petersburg
The subject of the picture was taken from Ovid's Metamorphoses: the jealous Juno catches Jupiter with Io. To save his lover Jupiter transforms her into a cow and entrust her to Argus.
The landscape is the main subject of the painting, the human figures are only staffages.
Recently the attribution of this painting was given to Lambert Sustris, a painter from Amsterdam who worked with Titian in Venice.
