J. M. W. Turner – "Bacchus and Ariadne" (1840)
Titian – "Bacchus and Ariadne" (1523)
A Comparison of Details
A faun and his dog. Note his arched stance and brown cloth over left shoulder.
Compare the falling sweep of Ariadne's dress, posed right foot, and position of hands.
Noting similarities in the Bacchi, see Turner's use of the cymbal-player's pose.
[Art Edition] This blog is intended as a space within which I will share my findings related to classical music appropriation. Many composers in the past have quoted, borrowed, and recycled the themes and melodies of others. Having already noted many such instances, I hope to include the more interesting, and convincing, examples herein.
