Scene from the new comedy of "Old Heads and Young Hearts"

Scene from the new comedy of "Old Heads and Young Hearts", at the Haymarket Theatre, 1844. London stage production of a comedy of manners by Dion Boucicault. The complicated plot involves two interlocking love triangles, mistaken identities, disguises, and sudden reversals. Our illustration represents the fifth act scene, wherein the good Rural is overwhelmed with the reproaches of everybody, just as he imagines he has been serving them. Mr. Farren's transition from the natural to the hysterical laughter, and subsequent weeping, was a wonderful piece of acting, alone sufficient to stamp him a great artist'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V

The Triumph of Bacchus or The Drunkards, 17th Century. Artist: Diego Velazquez

The Triumph of Bacchus or The Drunkards, 17th Century. Velazquez, one of the few Spanish painters to depict mythological scenes, was often accused of treating the feats and tales of the classical gods with little respect, and even mockery. Actually, however, guided by his magnificent realism he simply brought the gods down to the mortal world. The best and most realistic way to present the triumph of the god of wine- Bacchus for the Romans and Dionysius for the Greeks- was to show him among a group of everyday drunkards. From the collection of the Prado Museum, Madrid, Spain
