In Greek mythology, Antiope was the name of the daughter of the river god Asopus. Her beauty attracted Zeus, who, assuming the form of a satyr, took her by force. In postclassical art, the story is depicted in paintings and prints as a scene of voyeurism.

Famous renderings of the subject include those of Watteau, a print by Rembrandt[1], a painting[2] with a very hairy Jupiter by Spranger, another painting [3] by Hans von Aachen and a painting by Goltzius[4], who shows a lactating Antiope.
