Diego Rodríguez de Silva Velázquez, the leading painter in Philip IV's court, was born in 1599 and was one of the most prolific artists of the Spanish Golden Age. Known for the use of chiaroscuro and the tenebrist style, he painted numerous canvas of cultural and historical significance, with some of his most celebrated paintings being the Las Meninas, Old Woman Frying Eggs and The Surrender Of Breda.
After Velázquez became an established and recognized painter in Seville, he was invited by King Phillip IV to move to Madrid. With a guarantee that no other painter would be allowed to make a portrait for Phillip, the artist was responsible for more than ten canvas depicting the King and the royal family.
The astonishing painting The Triumph of Bacchus, popularly known as Los Borrachos or The Drunks, was painted by Diego Velázquez in 1629 after his arrival in Madrid. Commissioned by Philip IV, this work of art depicts Bacchus celebrating with common and drunken people, placing a wreath on a man that is well dressed.
This masterpiece was the first Velázquez painting regarding mythological subjects and was done in a naturalistic style. Art critics interpreted the canvas as a parody or as a symbolic representation of everyday people asking the god of pleasure and wine, Bacchus, to help them break free from their worries. The painter received 100 ducats for the conclusion of this magnificent work of art.
Using the chiaroscuro technique, the Roman God is portrayed with bright tones, in contrast with the darker colors used in the ones who surround him. Bacchus and the man behind him are naked from the waist up, with pink and white silks covering their legs. The man drawn in the painting wears typical clothing of lower-class people of XVII century Spain. Some men are facing Bacchus, and some are looking at the viewers, inviting them to join their party, with a similar atmosphere found in Jusepe de Ribera's works.
Another source of inspiration was Titian's Bacchus and Ariadne, which was in the Spanish royal collection. The treatment given by Caravaggio on religious subjects can also be seen in this masterpiece, with the combination of the main characters using robes in a Renaissance style, also seen in the Wedding of Bacchus and Ariadne, from Taddeo Zuccari.
