DIONYSUS - large graphite drawing on paper by Genya Gritchin.

(130 x 120 cm. / 51.1 x 47.2 in)


From the Rijks Museum website:

Originally Dionysus was the Greek god of fertility. Later, he came to be known chiefly as the god of wine and pleasure. The Romans called him Bacchus. Dionysus was the son of the supreme god Zeus and Semele, the daughter of a king.

On his travels Dionysus was accompanied by satyrs (demons) and ‘Maenads’ or ‘Bacchae’; ‘possessed women’ who gave themselves to ecstasy.

Excessive drinking and debauchery generally accompanied the cult of Dionysus, giving rise to the word ‘bacchanalia’ for a party featuring drunken revelry. 

This graphite drawing was created as a carton drawing for a commissioned painting of the same size. You can view the images in this listing.
