Bacchus Venus and Cupid

size(cm): 30x25
Sale price£88 GBP


Bacchus, the god of wine, seductively approaches Venus from behind. His hand grips her right shoulder, his gaze drifting over her revealed body.

In his left hand he holds a glass of wine, which Aachen contrasts with a stone slab on the left (also bearing the artist's monogram): liquid wine or solid stone - sensual pleasure or steadiness - the choice is not yet made.
