Madame Joulie has commented on various aspects of the composition, highlighting elements that are characteristic of Boucher, especially the arrangement of figures, the application of chalk and the use of stumping. She compares the placement of the figures in the present sheet to two studies now in the Louvre‘s collection (Inv. nos. 24757 and 24758).
Boucher approached the subject of Bacchus and Ariadne in 1749 when he was commissioned to produce the designs for a series of nine tapestries representing Les Amours des Dieux.
