Relief Dionysus with Cupid. The bas-relief presented here is a reproduction of an original by the Danish sculptor Albert Bertel Thorvaldsen. In this bas-relief, Dionysus, the god of wine, is offering a bowl of wine to Cupid, the god of Love. It is based on the songs of Anacreon, the famous Ionian poet, who in his love poems wrote about the relationship between Love and wine.

Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844, Copenhagen, Denmark) was a prominent representative of the neoclassical period in sculpture. He has often been compared to Antonio Canova, but in fact, he embodies the style of classical Greek art more than that of the Italian artist. Thorvaldsen’s work is imbued with great sensitivity, with allegorical reliefs and sculptures on classical themes (reliefs, statues, and busts). In addition to works mainly inspired by Greek mythology, he also made portraits of important personalities and historical figures, as well as commemorative monuments. His works can be seen in many European countries, especially in the Thorvaldsen Museum.

In this relief, the Danish sculptor depicts the motif of Bacchus with Cupid. Bacchus Dionysus is the god of wine in Greco-Roman mythology, personifying joy and ecstasy, exaltation, and enthusiasm, emotions that come close to the desire induced by Cupid’s arrows. In his love lyric poems, Anacreon sings about Dionysus and Eros, and the comfort that wine offers in the face of the woes of love.

Decorating with classical reliefs representing mythological characters helps us evoke the greatness of ancient Greece.
