Title:  Danae
Artist:  Klimt, Gustav [Austrian, 1862-1918]
Year:  1907-08
Material:  Oil on Canvas
Dimensions:  77 x 83 cm
Where:  Private Collection in Graz
Notes:  Danae, seemingly underwater, with her thighs drawn up. Gold and silver seminal flow rising between her legs.

The legend is about Danae mating with Zeus in the form of a gold shower to conceive Perseus ... all depicted here. The eroticism is intentional: red hair, etc. The small block rectangle is Klimt's way of reducing maleness to an abstract symbol.
