Folder 25 x 35 cm Canova - Psyche revived by Cupid's KissLog in to see prices
The legend of Cupid and Psyche largely inspired neoclassical sculptors at the end of the 18th century. Canova is no exception to the rule and represents many versions. In that of the Louvre, he chose to illustrate the moment when Cupid, god of Love, was about to kiss Psyche to free her from her deep sleep. Time seems to have suspended before this imminent kiss, freezing in the marble all the tenderness of the loving couple.
