Flaminio, Parioli, Villa Borghese
This scene is taken from mythology and recounts the story of one of Zeus’ Loves: the princess of Argos, Danae, imprisoned by her father Acrisius who was afraid of a prophecy of being dethroned by his nephew, is impregnated by Zeus who transforms into a golden shower to reach her. From their union Perseus was born. The painting only came to the Gallery in 1827 when Camillo Borghese bought it at an antique market.
