Notes

Summary:
This work constitutes the clearest evidence of a stylistic change of direction in Titian's painting at this time.It is clear that a work such as this Danae could never have been fully appreciated in the artistic climate of contemporary Rome. Indeed, Vasari recounts how the great Michelangelo went to pay his respects to Titian in his rooms and, having seen the Danae, praised its "colouring and style". On leaving the painter's house, however, Michelangelo could not resist adding that "it was a shame that in Venice they did not learn to draw well from the beginning and that those painters did not pursue their studies with more method."
