This Triumph of Bacchus is one of at least three versions of the subject by or after Sauvage; the Metropolitan Museum also owns a larger, signed picture (07.225.272). Here the composition has been simplified. Two figures have been omitted and there is less detail. The painting and its pendant (07.225.314b) imitate bronze. Both must be from the Sauvage workshop.
