Bacchic revel with Silenus in the centre riding a goat
Andrea Schiavone (Andrea Meldola) Italian
Not on view
In his prints as in his paintings, Schiavone combined elongated Mannerist forms derived from his study of Parmigianino with the tonal atmosphere characteristic of Venetian art. In this depiction of Silenus riding a goat in the company of a priapic satyr and an ecstatic bacchante, the indistinct contours of figures shaped by webs of hatching create a vibrant sense of movement.
