DANAE AND THE SHOWER OF GOLD

"Danae and the Shower of Gold" (see related A | B | C | D | E | F) Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) Ringling Art Museum, Sarasota, Florida, USA

Imprisoned in an impregnable chamber by her father after a prophesy that a grandson would kill him, Danae was impregnated by a shower of Gold. This rendition plagiarizes (since it is inferior to those it imitates) renditions by Titian.
