Female Nude Art Postcard
This beautiful postcard is a reproduction of a painting by artist Rembrandt. The image is of a nude woman, Danae, Princess of Argos from Greek mythology. She is presumably depicted as welcoming Zeus, who impregnated her in the form of a shower of gold. Rembrandt's wife, Saskia, was original model, but Rembrandt later changed the figure's face to that of his mistress.
Rembrandt, whose full name was Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn, (1606 - 1669) was the child of Dutch peasants. He was born with near-miraculous skill in art.
