This picture is unusual in Cézanne's oeuvre for its specific literary subject matter. It represents the story from Ovid's Metamorphoses in which Zeus disguises himself as a swan to seduce Leda, the daughter of King Thestius. This is certainly one of the artist's more overtly sensual paintings: Leda displays herself for the viewer, hip curving dramatically and cheeks flushed, while the swan's beak wraps around her wrist as if taking possession of her. Cézanne made two drawings in preparation for the painting, one of which shows the figure holding a champagne flute.

Leda and the Swan (Léda au cygne) was painted by the male French artist Paul Cézanne. The original creation had the following dimensions - Overall: 23 1/2 x 29 1/2 in (59,7 x 74,9 cm).

Please keep in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the poster we add a white margin 2-6 cm around the print, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.

The work of art is custom-made with the help of modern UV print technology. This has the effect of rich and sharp color tones. The major upside of an acrylic glass fine art copy is that contrasts plus smaller image details become exposed because of the delicate gradation.
