Bacchante on a Panther, 1855

William Adolphe Bouguereau

Bacchante on a Panther, 1855. Part of a series of six paintings that decorated Etienne Bartholony's house in Paris, these paintings emulate ancient Roman designs. Crisp, cut-out forms are set against a gold background painted in imitation of mosaic. Arion was an ancient Greek poet who escaped death by riding away on the back of a sea creature who had been attracted by the poet's song. In the companion picture, a bacchante---a female worshipper of the wine god Bacchus---rides on a panther, the god's symbolic animal. These works were shown at the 1857 Paris Salon exhibition.
