Description

 

The prestigious expert opinion that has evaluated this monumental painting confirms the attribution to an important Venetian artist of the early 17th century linked to the Flemish painter Jacob de Backer. Though Danae was certainly one of the favorite subjects throughout the 16th and 17th centuries in general, there was a great variety of stylistic and compositional versions. Here, however, Perseus's mother seems to turn to her baby with a bit of a frown, as if to tell her to quickly gather all the precious gold coins into which Zeus has turned himself. It is this important gesture of his right hand that sets it apart from all the best known models. The original certificate is issued by a distinguished CECOA qualified expert (Expert agréé de la Chambre Européenne des Experts-conseil en œuvre d'Art) and is available on request. This work, never before on market, comes from a private collection and is embellished with an impressive antique frame in ebonized wood with gold details, in near perfect condition.
