Ovid’s Metamorphoses has remained the most popular work of mythology since it was written two thousand years ago. The illustrated editions that were published from 1497 onwards established a standard repertoire of compositions for the depiction of many myths. The engravings to this edition were produced by Giacomo Franco (1550-1620), son of Battista Franco (no. 84).
