Les Folies Bachiques

Sine Baccho et Cerere friget Venus (School of the North of the XVIIth century)

Who better than Terence through this allegory has been able to describe the benefits of wine on love. This maxim was represented by the greatest painters of the Italian and Northern schools from the second half of the 16th century until the first half of the 17th century and by some French painters who stayed in Italy, such as François Perrier or Bon Boulogne.
(Research on the attribution of the author of this painting currently leads to Gérard de Lairesse, the Poussin du Nord)
