> DESCRIPTION

One of the most sensual paintings of the Italian Renaissance—Titian’s Danaë (1544–1545) from the Capodimonte Museum, Naples—will be on view at the Gallery to celebrate the commencement of Italy’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union (EU). The Danaë is one of several examples of the genre of erotic mythologies in Western art popularized by Titian. Two other examples of this genre by Titian from the Gallery’s permanent collection—Venus with a Mirror (c. 1555) and Venus and Adonis (c. 1560)—are on also on view in the West Building, in gallery M-23.
