Favorite Paintings # 4 – Triumph of Bacchus
Amazing that this is a painting by Velasquez and not Caravaggio. Bacchus looks like one of the young men in Caravaggio and the compostion reminds me of the The Calling or The ToothPuller. The subject is so “not Velasquez”..but it sure looks like a hell of a party!! Wish I had been there. In the Prado.
