Workshop of Giulio Romano: 'The Infancy of Jupiter'

Explore the paintings

The nine figures in the background, who are variously styled the Corybantes or the Curetes according to different versions of this legend, are shown making music so that the noise will distract Jupiter's father, Saturn, from devouring his offspring.

The picture was formerly in the collection of King Charles I, and is one of a series of twelve pictures, of which four are in the Royal Collection.
