Danae (golden rain)

The plot of the Greek myth, according to which the picture was painted, the Greek king was predicted that he would die by the hand of his grandson. Fearing this prediction, he locked up his only daughter in the underground palace. But Zeus (the supreme God-thunderer of the Greek pantheon) saw her through the walls and penetrated to her in the form of a golden cloud and spilled on her in a golden rain, after which Danaë gave birth to a son.
