Cupid & Psyche
(Special Museum Series)
ARTIST: Gérard Francois
SIZE: 19" x 27"
MADE BY: Clementoni
DESCRIPTION: The young princess
Psyche is both surprised and aroused by the first kiss of Cupid, who is
invisible to her. The antique myth depicted here is a love story but also
a metaphysical allegory: Psyche is a personification of the human soul.
The work, painted in 1798 by Francois
illustrates the neoclassicism's evolution
towards sensuality and a certain formal abstraction.
This particular painting hangs in the Louvre in Paris,
