One of the exquisite painting by Titian, a leading artist of the Italian Renaissance. Bacchus, god of wine emerges from the landscape with his followers from the right. Falling in love with Ariadne on sight, he leaps from his chariot, drawn by two chariots, towards her. Ariadne had been abandoned on the Greek island of Naxos by Theseus, whose ship is shown in the distance. The picture shows her initial fear of Bacchus, but he raised her to heaven and turned her into a constellation, represented by the stars above her head.
The painting is about the Greek myth of the tragedy of Icarus, supposedly done by Bruegel or his successor. As the story goes, Icarus, son of Daedalus, took flight from imprisonment wearing the fragile wings his father had mad for him. Heedless of his father's warnings, Icarus flew too close to the burning sun, which then melted his wings and Icarus then hurtled to the sea and to his death. The irony of the death of Icarus is that his death goes unnoticed- as you can you see in the bottom right, a mere splash in the sea.
