Although the expression on the face of Bacchus is not particularly joyful, the overall mood of the painting seems cheerful because of the use of extra light and brightness.
The painting also seems to reflect the personality of Bacchus himself, as he is depicted her holding a glass of wine and has a pitcher of wine on the table in front of him, as well as being surrounded by the jovial colours.
