This print records five cartoons of the Loves of Jupiter after Giulio Romano. It is printed on the same sheet as 1855,0609.294, 295, 297, and 298 (each of the cartoons, although printed from a single plate and on the same sheet, has been given its own register number).
Massari attributes the plate to Couché, but it is not described under that name in the Inventaire du Fonds Français.
