Danae

The original work is dated 1907-1908 and is kept in a private collection in Austria. Gustav Klimt draws inspiration from Greek mythology: the girl Danae is represented by the artist huddled up in an almost foetal position while sleeping practically without veils. The golden rain on the left represents Jupiter. The scene suggests an intimate and allusive dream, it seems to narrate the ecstasy in which Danae is.

The original work is dated 1907-1908 and is kept in a private collection in Austria. Gustav Klimt draws inspiration from Greek mythology, according to which the beautiful Danae is locked up in a tower by his father Acrisus in order to protect her from the suitors and protect himself from the prophecy that he would be killed by his grandchild. Zeus, in love with the beautiful daughter of the king of Argos, transformed into a cloud, enters the bronze tower in the form of golden rain and conceives a son, Perseus, with the sleeping girl. The girl Danae is represented by the artist huddled up in an almost foetal position while sleeping practically without veils. The golden rain on the left represents Jupiter. The scene suggests an intimate and allusive dream, it seems to narrate the ecstasy in which Danae is. The symbolism and the influence of the Byzantine mosaics visited by Klimt in Ravenna in 1903 are evident in this painting which is certainly part of the painter's golden age, even if gold is no longer dominant, and this important period of his production is about to end, the following year, in 1909, due to a great artistic and personal crisis. The theme of female eroticism is represented again in this canvas by the artist, who loves women and adores to represent them.
