Cupid and Psyche by Antonio Canova (1757-1822), 1793, Louvre, Paris
Canova chose the most romantic of myths as the subject of this masterpiece—the love affair between Psyche, a mortal, and Cupid, the god of love. Originally commissioned in 1787 for Scottish patron John Campbell, it was completed in 1793 and is presently at the Louvre. Designed to be seen in the round, our exacting, museum-quality replica of Canova’s work captures the perfection of these two graceful figures as they tenderly embrace. Complete with incredible sculptural detail, it is cast in quality designer resin for your home gallery.
