Artist: Jean Leone Gerome
Title: The Bacchante, 1853
Medium: Oil on Canvas
Size: 18 3/4 in diameter

This subject matter is a rare one for Gerome, because of it's mythological theme. It's circular composition intrudes into the creatures space, whose eyes are down cast and seems to be in a reflective mood.

Regardless, it is one of my favorite painting by him and I love everything about it.
