Notes

Summary:
The young Danae, who is accompanied in her bed by a little dog, watches as the rain of coins falls on her, whilst her surprised and greedy servant tries to collect as much as she can in her apron. The whiteness of Danae's body contrasts with the dark and twisted body of the servant; both stand out against the beautiful and almost stormy golden background.
