Notes

Summary:
This painting by Titian is the counterpart of the "Garden of loves" which hangs in the same Museum's hall. Both mythological themes were painted for the duke of Ferrara and given to Philip IV as a gift by one of Titian's heirs, much to the consternation of Italian art experts. In this Bacchanal- or feast of Bacchus- Titian illustrates the mythological scene of the arrival of the god of wine to the Isle of Andros, dedicated to him since the rivers ran with wine instead of water. The isle's inhabitants await Bacchus' arrival -his ship with sails unfurled can be seen in the distance. The colouring and movement of the figures are magnificent.
