841 x 768 • 209 KB
Widener Collection 1942. This is largely a work by Giovanni Bellini up until his death in 1514. Several years later Titian was commissioned to paint over previous changes administered by Dosso Dossi and Titian is now recognized as having painted the mountainous landscape (although the pheasant in the centre remains as the work of Dosso Dossi). The figures and elements of the bacchanal remain as those by Bellini. See also under 'Giovanni Bellini'.

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
