This image of the beautiful (but rather unfortunate) Danae is available as a poster (in 3 sizes) from our friends at


  1. Ohmigosh, my mom has that exact painting (I’m assuming it’s not the original :))!

  2. See the print on the fabric in the lower right of the painting? That is believed to be the first image of a blastocyst ever presented outside of the scientific literature. How cool is that?!

  4. Love Klimpt. When are you going to feature Botero? Or is that too obvious?

  5. Did you happen to catch the Klimt exhibit at the Neue Gallerie? It was phenomenal.

  6. Love Klimpt! I have 3 of his prints. @Rebecca, I also love Botero! He did just publish about 80 paintings about Abu Ghraib that has pissed off the US Right Wingers. Google him and read the facinating article… Manolo might be considered subversive if they show his art.
