Art/Literary - Philosophy
English term or phrase: maenads
Specifically, the focus of his research is the dialectical nature of the Renaissance appropriation of antiquity, combining a "still grandeur" with a much more animated, ecstatic vision inspired by the Bacchanalian excess of the maenads of Dionysus. This dialectical vision accounts for the simultaneous presence in Botticelli's Primavera of the still figure of Venus and of the windswept nymph Flora, with her counterpart in the three dancing Graces.
