The Sculpture of Satyr & Bacchante

Satyr & Bacchante, this piece which was originally sculpted by James Pradier in 1833 during the contemporary period & depicts the Satyr with his cloven hooves and the Bacchante or nymph, linked to the God Dionysus (or Bacchus), reclined in an erotic vision that sparked some real controversy at the time it was first exhibited at the Salon de Paris in 1834.

Originally sculpted from plaster, the marble version is now displayed at the Louvre in Paris, France.
