Das in der Einlieferertradition Guido Cagnacci zugeschriebene Gemälde zeigt in einem angedeuteten Landschaftsausschnitt mit rechts geöffnetem Himmel den König Agenor mit seiner Tochter Europa, die von dem als Stier getarnten Zeus entführt wird. Ein Gemälde in der Sammlung Palazzo Borromeo, Isola Bella, Stresa, zeigt eine junge Frau, die in ihrem nach links gewandten Profil einige Ähnlichkeit aufweist mit der hier dargestellten Europa (Fondazione Zeri Inv.Nr. 55759).

The painting, which is attributed to Guido Cagnacci according to the tradition of the seller, shows King Agenor with his daughter Europa, who is kidnapped by Zeus disguised as a bull, in an implied landscape section with the sky opening to the right.
