The Infant Bacchus, Cupid and Putti, Italian School, mid-16th Century.

Oil on panel, 52cm by 85.5cm.

The painting was previously attributed to Parmigianino (1503-1540). It depicts a young Bacchus, (with vine leaves on his head), a winged Cupid, (with a band around his head, an arrow in his hand and a quiver slung across his shoulder) and five putti, dancing to the music made by another putto who leans through a nearby oculus.
