About this artwork

The well known Renaissance painting 'Bacchus and Ariadne' by Titian has left a significant impact on the art scene in Europe and remains one of the National Gallery's most celebrated pieces. The painting brings to life the narrative penned by famed classical writers Ovid and Catallus, revolving around the Cretan princess Ariadne who was left stranded on the Greek island of Naxos. The moment Bacchus, the god of wine, instantly falls in love with her and darts from his chariot towards her is beautifully portrayed. The Duke of Ferrara commissioned Titian to create 'Bacchus and Ariadne', specifically for the 'Alabaster Room' in the Ducal Palace. Artists Giovanni Bellini and Dosso Dossi were also asked to create pieces, all centered around the theme of hedonistic bacchanals. The colour palette of this print perfectly matches the original painting and has received the National Gallery's seal of approval. Every purchase contributes to the museum's noble cause.

About the artist

Titian (Tiziano Vecellio, 1488-1576) was an Italian painter of the High Renaissance period, well known for his use of colour and his masterful technique. He was a major influence on the Venetian school of painting, and his works are considered some of the most important in the history of Western art. Titian was born in Pieve di Cadore, in the Republic of Venice, and was apprenticed to the artist Sebastiano Zuccato. He later worked with Giorgione and Giovanni Bellini, and was a close friend of the poet Pietro Aretino. Titian was also a court painter for the ruling families of Venice, and was knighted by the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V.
