English: Jupiter Kissing Ganymede, fresco by Anton Raphael Mengs and Giovanni Casanova (Giacomo's brother) in 1758. An imitation of an ancient Roman fresco, it was created to fool archeologist and art historian Johann Joachim Winckelmann, for his enthusiasm for homosexual love and themes, who regarded it as an original. Now in the Palazzo Corsini, Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Antica, Rome.
