Poussin and the Dance

We went to Poussin and the Dance:  more sensual and much more bacchanalian than the conventional (Bluntian) view of Poussin as cool and calculating. Maybe that came later. A very choice exhibition for which the downstairs galleries at the National Gallery work well.

A Bacchanalian Revel before a Term (c.1632);-

The Adoration of the Golden Calf (1633-4):-

The Triumph of Bacchus (1635):-

The Triumph of Pan (1636):-

A Dance to the Music of Time (c.1634):-
