Bacchus (c. 1595) is a painting by Caravaggio (1571–1610). It is held in the Uffizi Gallery, Florence.
The painting shows a youthful Bacchus reclining in classical fashion with grapes and vine leaves in his hair, fingering the drawstring of his loosely draped robe. On a stone table in front of him is a bowl of fruit and a large carafe of red wine; with his left hand he holds out to the viewer a shallow goblet of the same wine, apparently inviting the viewer to join him. It was a great pleasure to see the painting that was discovered in 1913, When it was found in a storeroom of the Uffizi Galleries, it had never been 
catalogued or framed.
