ABOUT THIS PIECE Mannerist Painter Hans von Aachen's Bacchus Ceres and Cupid was made in 1600 and the original painting is in Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien. The original size of the work is 163 x 113 cm and is made of oil on panel. The clear preference for erotic subjects is also a distinctive feature of Rudolphine court art. Ceres, the Roman goddess of fertility, dominates the foreground of the painting in a striking rear view. Her elongated limbs and the opposing movements of her torso and head are characteristic features of Mannerism. Bacchus, the god of wine, has approached Ceres from behind. He tenderly touches her, looking at her in joyful anticipation, while she fixes her gaze on the viewer. The boy at the bottom left presents them with a basket of fruit and vegetables. Aachen lends his own and his wife's features to the mythological figures. The boy resembles Aachen's son. The motive could hint at the famous painting by the Greek painter Zeuxis who painted a boy with grapes so convincingly that birds picked at the painted fruits. The Artist: Hans von Aachen (1552 - 1615) was a German painter who was one of the leading representatives of Northern Mannerism. Hans von Aachen was a versatile and productive artist who worked in many genres. He was successful as a painter of princely and aristocratic portraits, and further painted religious, mythological and allegorical subjects.
