Portraits

Mythologies Venus and the Lute Player Venus and AdonisBacchus and Ariadne Venus of Urbino
Mythologies • In Bacchus and Ariadne Bacchus is shown leaping from his chariot, startling the lovely Ariadne. Titian derived the subject matter from literary descriptions of classical works of art. • Venus, the mythological goddess of love, is the protagonist of a number of works by Titian, the best known probably being the so-called Venus of Urbino. This reclining nude is at once idealized and erotic.
Later in his career, Titian turned to the theme in paintings for his important patrons, such as Philip II of Spain. As often happened in his workshop, variants would then be carried out for others. This is the case in both Venus and the Lute Player and Venus and Adonis.
