Bacchus and Ariadne on the island of Naxos, Hymen behind them, surrounded by satyrs, putti and garlands, Bacchus' chariot on left. Engraved by Antoine Coypel (1661-1722) with Girard Audran (1640-1703), reversing Coypel's own painting (now in the Philadelphia Museum of Art). Having begun his career with royal commissions such decorating the chateua of Choisy near Paris, a lack of official commissions in the 1690s led Coypel to alter his style to appeal to private patrons, moving towards cheerful mythological subjects such as this.
