Bacchus and Ariadne is a painting produced between 1522 and 1523 by Italian painter Titian.
Originally, an advance payment was given to Raphael for producing the subject of Triumph of Bacchus. But, Raphael died in 1520 and at that time only a preliminary drawing was completed. The commission was then handed to Titian
The scene, at first glance, seems somewhat chaotic, but if you look closely, you will see some defining areas that tell the story clearly. Bacchus and Ariadne are separated from the group of revellers and brought into focus with the blue of the sky behind them. While Bacchus is still partially pinned close to his companions, you can see his heart wishes to be with Ariadne. Later, we learn that he marries her and gives her immortality.
The composition is divided diagonally into two triangles, using the expensive ultramarine pigment which depicts blue sky and the two lovers caught in movement. Other is a riot of the movement, which uses green and brown. Pigments used by Titian have been undertaken for analysis by scientists at the National Gallery in London. Titian had been working on Bacchus and Ariadne for almost three years, as recorded in the history
