The painting “Bacchus, the singing cupid” was painted in 1828 with oil on canvas.

Genre - a mythological picture.

In the center of the picture is a beautiful companion of the god Bacchus (Dionysus in ancient Greek mythology), which allows the baby, pressed to it, to drink from a golden jug. Bacchante turned to face the viewer. It is framed by dark hair with a wreath of grape leaves woven into them. Thin eyebrows repeat the shape of the eyes, tenderness and quiet joy froze in them. Soft sensual lips are half open, a slight smile plays on them. The upper part of the body, a little puffy, incredibly soft, like a light and gentle cloud, is completely open. The face of the beauty is incredibly feminine, filled with love and romanticism.

Cupid snuggles up to her - a chubby, full of life baby with golden hair, rosy cheeks and juicy scarlet lips. Curls of hair in shape resemble grape leaves on the head of a bacchante, creating harmony and integrity of two characters. The gold color of the jug is in harmony with the gold of curls.

The images of Bacchante and Amur are filled with calm, tenderness, quiet happiness, special sensuality and expressiveness. They are depicted against a dark forest filled with mystery and mystery. An ornament of grape leaves, a light path that runs into the distance creates perspective and gives the work depth.

The main tool for conveying mood is the color scheme. The combination of light, warm saturated colors with deep dark shades gives volume to the images. The feeling of tenderness, sensuality and love is destroyed by the pink and blue cloths located below. Color, clearly and sharply traced folds give the work some coldness and formality.

The work is stored in the State Russian Museum.
