It's a sign that September has arrived when leaves are changing from green to gold in the Northern Hemisphere. This marks the beginning of the annual harvest in the vineyards. From Ancient Egyptians to the modern-day, from Caravaggio to Picasso, artists and poets have been celebrating this time of the year with lavish depictions of Dionysus and scenes of joyful parties giving the wine a divine connotation. Some shades of red and purple, such as Burgundy or Bordeaux are so strongly associated with wine, that they are named after different wine regions of France. In addition, purple was once considered a royal color due to the high cost of obtaining natural dyes. More recently, it has come to symbolize luxury and refinement. Enjoy on RtistiQ a selection of artworks celebrating the tradition of winemaking through colors or subject.
