Subject and Association Description"When 'Bacchanal' was reproduced in 'Art in Australia' Lindsay added to it the cryptic comment 'Dedicated to America'. The 1920s were not a good time for American drinkers of quality wines. 'Bacchanal' can be seen as a work in praise of the pleasures of the grape."
