The island of Andros was so favored by Bacchus that a stream flew with wine. Gods, men and children celebrate the effects of wine, whose consumption, in Philostratus´ words, makes men rich, dominant, generous to their friends, handsome and four cubits high. A nude nymph lies in the foreground, and Silenus in the background. The music on the score in the lower center of the composition has been attributed to Adriaen Willaert, a Flemish composer active in the Court of Ferrara. Its lyrics:Qui boyt et ne reboyt il ne seet que boyre soit (“He who drinks and doesn't drink again, doesn't know what drinking is”.) refer to the celebration of wine.

English: The subject is drawn from Philostratus (Imagines I, 25). The painting belongs to a series commissioned from Giovanni Bellini, Titian and Dosso Dossi, for the Camerino d'Alabastro, (Alabaster Room) in the Ducal Palace, Ferrara, by Alfonso d'Este, Duke of Ferrara, who in 1510 even tried commissions to Michelangelo and Raphael. Between 1518-1525 Titian painted also Worship of Venus (Prado) and Bacchus and Ariadne, National Gallery, London, for the Alabaster Room. In 1514 Giovanni Bellini painted Feast of the Gods.
