Danse de bacchantes (Bacchanalian dance) (1920).

Rupert Bunny (Australian, 1864-1947).

Colour monotype on paper.

Art Gallery of South Australia.

The painting visually encapsulates the vibrancy of modern dance and the exotic splendour of France’s belle époque, as well as the brilliant and unconventional colour combinations. Applying pure colour, Bunny created vibrant patterns using dynamic arabesque lines, interwoven to create vivid tapestry-like surfaces.
