The triumph of Bacchus and Ariadne in Covent Garden
Painting - Oil On Canvas
An interpretation of paintings by Titian and Annibale Carracci. As Ariadne is cycling through Covent Garden she is deserted by her lover Theseus. She is discovered crying by the god Bacchus, who immediately falls in love with her. He has been leading a procession of Satyrs and Maenads in a chariot drawn by two leopards. Bacchus is depicted in mid-air as he leaps out of the chariot to protect Ariadne from these beasts. He takes her diadem and casts it into the skies where it becomes the constellation of Corona. Framed.
