The Inebriation of Bacchus is an original old master painting realized in the first half of the XVII century in the Giulio Carponi atelier

Original oil on canvas. 

Very good conditions. 

Beautiful ancient painting depicting a traditional classic mythological scene (especially during the early seventeenth century in the Venetian context). The scene depicts Bacchus, god of wine and excesses, in the moment of drunkenness. The god, depicted in his classic iconography and with all the typical ichonographic attributes, is accompanied by several figures: satyrs and cherubs (that ofter are present in the processions that follow Bacchus). The figures are carrying him on a goat, a Dionysian symbol. The composition of the painting is all built on color, typical characteristic of the Venetian school.

The work has been realized by one of the pupils of Giulio Carpioni (Venice, 1613 - 1678).
Carpioni was a pupil of the Padovanino who followed in Bergamo in 1631. It is possible that shortly afterwards the painter went to Rome, in order to complete his classicistic preparation through the study of Titian's Bacchanals and of the works by Nicolas Poussin. From 1636 it is documented in Vicenza where he lived almost continuously, until his death.

His most excellent works are in the museums of Vienna and Budapest, Bordeaux, Dijon, Dresden; in Italy they are present in Florence, Padua, Ancona as well as naturally in Vicenza, where he spent most of his life.
