Abstract

At 1545 Titian accepted the invitation of the Pope's nephew, Cardinal Alessandro Farnese and went to Rome. He carried with him the remarkable Danae (now in Naples), painted for Ottavio Farnese, which he had completed shortly before his departure. This work constitutes the clearest evidence of a stylistic change of direction in Titian's painting at this time.
