Peter Paul Rubens, 1638-40 - Bacchus. Hermitage. Created in the last years of Rubens' life. Bacchus is depicted as a grossly obese man, surrounded by a satyr, a maenad and putti. The natural, sketchy technique, enabled the artist to create a genuine sense of debauchery, or bacchanalia. This is a paean to human flesh. According to Rubens' nephew, Philip, this was not a commissioned work, and the artist kept it in his studio till the end of his life.
