Bacchus and Ariadne (1522–1523) is an oil painting by Titian. It is one of a cycle of paintings on mythological subjects produced for Alfonso I d'Este, Duke of Ferrara.
An advance payment was given to Raphael, who originally held the commission for the subject of a Triumph of Bacchus. At the time of Raphael's death in 1520, only a preliminary drawing was completed and the commission was then handed to Titian.
✨ The Story Of Bacchus & Ariadne:
Bacchus, the god of wine, falls in love with Ariadne and offers her marriage with the promise of a crown of stars as a wedding gift. In another version of the story, he offers her the Sky as a wedding gift where she later would become the constellation of the Northern Crown (Corona Borealis).
