Philemon et Baucis reçoivent dans leur cabane Jupiter et Mercure - Philemon and Baucis receive in their home Jupiter and Mercury


Based on a painting of Rubens, now in Dresden and inspired by the Metamorphosis of Ovid. The subject has been painted by many other artists. Other works from the period of the engraving, around 1640, include that of Nicolaes Lauwers at Castello del Buonconsiglio of Trento, more didactic, less expressive; or the work of Johann Carl Loth, completed before 1659, now in Vienna at the Kunsthistorisches Museum.
