Titian's Mythical Paintings

Bacchus and Ariadne  http://cgfa.kelloggcreek.com/titian/p-titian11.htm

This painting is one of a famous series by Bellini, Titian and the Ferrarese artist Dosso Dossi, commissioned by Alfonso d'Este, Duke of Ferrara, for the Camerino d'Alabastro in his Castle..... Bacchus, god of wine, emerges with his followers from a landscape to the right. Falling in love with Ariadne on sight, he leaps towards her from his cheetah-drawn chariot. Ariadne was abandoned on the Greek island of Naxos by Theseus, whose ship is shown in the distance. Bacchus, however, raised her to heaven, represented by the stars above her head.

The arm of Bacchus may be based on that of God the Father in Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel ceiling. The source of the story is taken from celebrated passages from the Latin poets Catullus ('Carmina', 64: 257-65), Ovid ('Ars Amatoria', I, 525-66) and Philostratus ('Imagines', 1: 15 and 19).

Titian's Venus Paintings

Venus and Adonis   http://cgfa.kelloggcreek.com/titian/p-titian4.htm

Titian's first version of Venus and Adonis was one of a series of eight mythological subjects created for King Philip II of Spain. More than thirty painted and engraved versions of this popular theme survive today. Some   were painted by Titian, whereas others were created by members of his workshop, and later copyists.

According to Ovid's Metamorphoses, Venus is in love with the handsome young Adonis, but knows that his ardent devotion to the hunt will eventually kill him. In this painting, she is holding onto him, attemping but failing to save his life. Adonis pulls away from her to heed the call of the hunt, and as a result meets his death.

"It is odd to see Venus depicted as a vulnerable figure and from a rear view. Titian wrote that by posing her from behind, he hoped to provide variety among the many nudes in King Philip's collection. By painting Venus from the back, Titian also allowed viewers to complete her beauty according to their own ideal of perfection. "
