Jupiter and the Gods urging Apollo to take back the Reins of his Chariot
Oil on panel. 1594
Cornelisz. Van Haarlem, Cornelis

The frieze arrangement of the figures places this work in the painter`s classical phase, which began in 1594, the same year as the date on this painting. In Van Thiel`s view, it could be the picture which the Haarlem City Council acquired from the painter in 1594, and which was presented as a gift to Coenraet Dircksz. de Rechtere in around 1601-08, in gratitude for services rendered between 1574 a

This is a traditional scene from the iconography of Bacchus, the Roman god of wine. It depicts his meeting with Ariadne on the island of Naxos. The god rides a chariot pulled by lions, and helps his future wife, who was abandoned by Theseus, to climb aboard (Ovid, Metamorphoses, VIII). They are accompanied by Bacchus´s habitual retinue of bacchants, satyrs and menads, ledy by Silenus on a donkey.

Velázquez, Diego Rodríguez de Silva y

Documentation of payment received by Velázquez in July 1629 for an image of Bacchus painted at the king`s behest informs us of the work`s approximate date and identifies its intended recipient. This was shortly before the artist`s first visit to Italy, barely five years after he began working for the king and at a time when he had just met Rubens. During this period, he was specialized in p

While it is first listed in 1666 at the Alcázar, where it hung alongside Ribera’s Fable of Bacchus or Teoxenia (of which only three fragments have survived: two at the Museo del Prado and one in a private collection), this work’s subject and dimensions suggest it may originally have been commissioned for the Buen Retiro Palace. Along with Finoglia’s Triumph of Bacchus (P7309), Poussin’s Sac

Paolo Domenico Finoglia was deeply involved in the creation of paintings for the History of Rome cycle at the Buen Retiro Palace. His participation includes this superb Triumph of Bacchus, a Gladiators’ Fight (Patrimonio Nacional, Inv. 10022324) and a painting with a very obscure subject traditionally known as Masinissa Mourning Over the Death of Sophonisba (P2280). This final work was even attrib

This fragment, together with Figure of a Woman (P-1122) and a third work in Bogotá, are the only remaining parts of a painting of the Triumph of Bacchus that is based on an Hellenistic relief, and shows the visit of this god of wine to earth and that was probably painted to form a pair with A Sacrifice to Bacchus by Massimo Stanzione, which is also in the Prado (P-259).

Bacchus and Ariadne
Oil on canvas. 1636 - 1638
Quellinus, Erasmus

La historia de Ariadna y el dios tiene dos momentos fundamentales: uno es el encuentro entre ellos en la isla de Naxos después de que ésta fuera abandonada allí por Teseo, tema que representó Tiziano para Alfonso I de Este y que ceunta Ovidio en las Metamorfosis en el libro VIII (174-182): "(...) El hijo de Egeo raptó a la hija de Minos, largó velas rumbo a Día, y en aquella playa abandonó, cruel,

El carro triunfal de Baco con todo su cortejo en relación con la hostilidad del rey Penteo aparece en libro III de las Metamorfosis de Ovidio (528 seq.): "(...) Ha llegado Líber; los campos resuenan con gritos de alborozo; corre el gentío; matronas y muchachas mezcladas con hombres, la chusma y los grandes señores acuden al nuevo culto. "¿Qué locura, hijos de la serpiente, prole de Marte, ha aturd

Various personages, semi-nude or wearing tunics, dance, drink, eat grapes, play instruments and enjoy themselves in a garden around a bust of Bacchus. Various popular and classical buildings are visible in the background. This work shows all of the influences present in Houasse´s painting. The academicist tendency of the figures is mixed with hints of Poussin, Titian and Watteau. Moreover, some fa

Offering to Bacchus
Oil on canvas. 1720
Houasse, Michel-Ange

This pagan scene shows the offer that the Bacchants, or followers of Bacchus, made to their god. In the center, a priest offers the sacrifice on an altar in front of the statue of the deity crowned with grape leaves. All around, those attending the feast drink, or appear totally inebriated, sleeping off the effects of the wine. This mythological scene shows how Houasse was influenced by the tradit

Giaquinto, Corrado

This is a sketch of the fresco that Corrado Giaquinto painted in the former stairway at the Madrid’s Royal Palace, which is now the Hall of Columns. That fresco, his last work at the Royal Palace, is undoubtedly one of the finest paintings from Giaquinto’s Spanish period.He concluded it in 1762, so the sketch presented here must have been made slightly earlier. At the top is the figure of Apollo,

Maella, Mariano Salvador

Bacchus, the god of wine, is the figure traditionally associated with Autumn. Accompanied here by a satyr with a wineskin, he leans on a barrel and raises a goblet of wine in a pose inspired by the classical marble statue of the Resting Satyr -then in La Granja palace and now in the Prado- after an original by Praxiteles. In the background several companions carry a drunken Silenus.

Dibujo en el que se representa a la izquierda a Baco cabalgando sobre un asno, acompañado por un sátiro y un fauno que le ofrecen racimos de uvas y le señalan un recipiente con vino; ante ellos, de espaldas camina otro fauno coronado de pámpanos. El dibujo podría estar relacionado con los artistas genoveses de mediados del siglo XVII (Texto extractado de Mena Marqués, M.: Catálogo de dibujos. VI.

Dibujo en el que se representa al dios Baco sentado, acodado en el brazo derecho, que sostiene el torso, alza la izquierda con una copa.Con una técnica muy sumaria, se relaciona con otros también atribuidos a Conchillos.
