Artist’s Statement
Also a painting that features in the Titian exhibition currently on view at the National Gallery. It was commissioned by Alfonso I d’Este, Duke of Ferrara, and one of the celebrated bacchanals. This is study of Bacchus catches the moment, when, suddenly coming across Cretan princess Ariadne, whose ship sails away in the distance, falls in love at first sight with her and leaps from his chariot towards her, convulsed with the sudden hit of overwhelming passion. Colour, flesh, emotion and the body in full movement.

Virtual Images - Where artworks are shown framed or within a room setting the images have been created using virtual/augmented reality software in some instances. The images are provided to give an idea of the scale of the artwork in the context of a room and the style of the framing. They should not be viewed as completely accurate e.g. the scale and the style/colours of the frame may vary slightly. 

An online gallery with an augmented reality option is very forward looking and very appealing to the buyer.

The picture arrived this afternoon, very well packed and in excellent condition. It is indeed a very fine picture.

The painting is received and is a really nice small study-like work...

Thank you very much for all your help.
