Correggio: Danae, a revision

 

Part of my "ReVisions" series where the original female nude figure is replaced with a male nude figure. It started with the realization that while images of the female nude have been ubiquitous in paintings for centuries, the male nude has seldom been recognized as a proper subject in serious art. More than a parody, it is attempt to call attention to this discrepancy while maintaining a respectful appreciation for the original work.
