Abduction - man looking at Rembrandt Getty Museum

I have had this painting lying around for quite some time now, I don't know why I haven't posted it before. On the painting you see a man looking at The Abduction of Europa painted by Rembrandt.

A lot of action is going on Rembrandts painting. You see the god Jupiter, who disguised himself as a white bull in order to seduce the princess Europa away from her companions and carry her across the sea to the distant land that would bear her name. My figure just stands there admiring the scene in front of him. I thought this contrast is quite interesting.

kind regards, Gerard
