Detail from Triumph of Bacchus and Ariadne, c. 1675, Giovanni Battista Gaulli (1639–1709)







A satyr fools around with a nymph in this detail from Young Bacchus, Jacob Jordaens (1593-1678)





Painted in 1762, this one's probably too late to be Baroque, technically, but IMO it's in the Baroque spirit. Detail from Birth of the Sun and the Triumph of Bacchus by Corrado Giaquinto (1703–1765)

Jordaens paints fat men extremely well. You might like this entry (http://men-in-full.livejournal.com/37109.html), and this one (http://men-in-full.livejournal.com/36312.html), both about Jordaens paintings (if you haven't seen them already, that is.)

Jordaens is incredible!!

I like him as much as I like Ruebens!

Thank you for introducing me to his works!

Thought of you this morn when I saw Wikipedia's featured article of the day (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Lambert).

Oh, that's great - good for them. Daniel Lambert has fascinated me for a long time.

I bet Ariadne had more fun with Bacchus than with Theseus who dumped her on Naxos on his way home to Athens from Crete ;-P
