Reconstructing the Camerino

In addition to The Feast of the Gods, the 1598 inventory of the Camerino listed a “bacchanal of men” by Dosso, now lost, and three other paintings by Titian: Bacchus and Ariadne, now at The National Gallery, London, and The Bacchanal of the Andrians and The Worship of Venus, now at the Prado in Madrid. Above them hung a series of ten smaller scenes from the Aeneid, also painted by Dosso (including one now at the National Gallery of Art). David Bull, paintings conservator at the National Gallery of Art, presents a reconstruction of the camerino and the arrangement of the paintings within. This clip is from European Art: Feast of the Gods, produced by the National Gallery of Art, Washington.
