Tullio Lombardo - Bacchus and Ariane Magnet

Tullio Lombardo (c.1455-1532)
Young Couple (Bacchus and Ariane), c. 1505 Vienna, Kunsthistorisches Museum, Kunstkammer

The peculiarity of this relief and a similar one in the Cà d'Oro in Venice is that each time the double portrait of a young couple appears to be placed on a narrow base plate against a neutral background. Models for this were provided by the antique tomb sculpture and the type of double portrait that originated in painting north of the Alps and was also adopted by Venetian painting in the early 16th century.
