The sculpture of Bacchus by Jacopo Sansovino (1486–1570) is one of the most celebrated works of the High Renaissance; it was executed about 1514, and is preserved in the Bargello, Florence. Another study of the Bacchus in this series is Tate D00066 (Turner Bequest V N).
The white wove paper, a type frequently used by Turner, was made by James Whatman at his Turkey Mill, Maidstone, Kent. Tate D00068 (Turner Bequest V P) from this series of studies came from the same source.
