Danae is an oil on canvas painted by the artist Gustave Klimt between 1907-1908 and kept in Vienna at the Galerie Wurthle. In this work it is dear to Klimt to draw the subjects from the Greek mythological culture, in fact in the painting there is told the myth of the girl Danae owned by Jupiter, all told in an allusive way during the woman's sleep. Danae occupies all the narrow space of the representation and is shown curled up in a fetal position; the reclining face, the half-open mouth and the contracted hand underline the themes dear to Klimt or sensuality. The theme of fertility is emphasized by the golden rain under the night sky. The painting Danae by Klimt represents a turning point in relation to the previous period in which the artist gave up the three-dimensionality of the bodies to give more space to the decoration with gold leaf. Here, however, we have the disappearance of the flat background, to make room for the return of color and the three-dimensionality of the bodies. Klimt's style always remains, in the way of dealing with the theme, in the color, of the decorations of the drapery and in the references to the mosaic used in the background. All these details are highlighted by fine art giclée print on canvas made by shopart technicians. Thanks to the help of high resolution files and pure pigment printing, combined with the Giclee printing method, the Danae prints by Gustave Klimt are of the highest quality. In addition, the customer has the possibility to add paint with raised brushstrokes to give the painting on canvas an appearance similar to the original preserved in the museum. In addition, the Danae by Klimt can be printed with fine art poster on 260 gr archival paper and on the finest mdf wood panel. To make the artistic reproduction similar to the original work, just add the varnish paint brush effect specially designed by the technicians in Shopart. This paint, non-toxic and transparent, does not alter the colors but adds a similar effect to the artworks painted in oil on canvas with raised brushstrokes visible to both eye and touch.
