Bronze group representing Ariadne riding a panther after a work by Johann Heinrich Dannecker. It represents a young nude woman wearing a crown of vine leaves as she is the wife of the god of wine Dionysus. She is represented in a calm attitude. It is to represent "the taming of wildness by beauty". Her slender and elongated body is typical of neoclassicism. The figures rest on a rectangular bronze plinth and a marble base.

 

Our piece is a work from the beginning of the 20th century.

 

Johann Heinrich Dannecker (1758-1841) was a German artist who worked in Stuttgart for the Duke of Wuttemberg. He was very inspired by the Ancients. He drew the design of Ariadne riding a panther in 1803 and realized it in marble in 1814. This sculpture is now in the Liebieghaus museum in Frankfurt.
