Danaë - Gustav Klimt

Gustav Klimt, as usual, puts here the eroticism of the woman in the foreground as well as the sensuality of the body. It is a representation of the myth of Danae, a character from Greek mythology. The cloth on which she is lying is richly embroidered with golden spheres; this thin and transparent veil barely covering her body adds sensuality and feminine softness. The golden rain on the left represents Zeus, forming a waterfall that passes between the young woman's thighs, symbol of fertilization. This symbol is reinforced by Danae's fetal position.

L'œuvre en bref

Gustav Klimt, as usual, puts here the eroticism of the woman in the foreground as well as the sensuality of the body. It is a representation of the myth of Danae, a character from Greek mythology. The cloth on which she is lying is richly embroidered with golden spheres; this thin and transparent veil barely covering her body adds sensuality and feminine softness. The golden rain on the left represents Zeus, forming a waterfall that passes between the young woman's thighs, symbol of fertilization. This symbol is reinforced by Danae's fetal position.

The artist

Born into a family of artisans, Gustav Klimt (1862 - 1918) entered the School of Decorative Arts in Vienna at the age of 14 and learned painting and mosaics. The Viennese artist began as a decorative painter on bourgeois villas. In love with art, he gets closer to the symbolist circles and wishes to promote modern art. Dreaming of reconciling painting and architecture, his status as a craftsman prevented him from being recognized as a full-fledged artist, as a barrier existed between the decorative arts and the arts considered as major. Revolted by this state of affairs, Klimt joined the Secessionist group in 1887 and even became its president, eager to promote Viennese art on an international level. An artist who was as much criticized as he was renowned, he moved away from the decorative arts towards the end of his life and turned to Fauvism, which he considered avant-garde.
