The sculpture “Cupid and Psyche, 1796” by Antonio Canova romantically conveys tenderness, yearning and the euphoria of fulfilled desires. Born in Italy, Canova (1757 – 1822) was an unsurpassed Neoclassical sculptor. His piece is based upon a 2nd century story, in which the Roman god Cupid revives his dying lover, Psyche, with a kiss. Their jubilant embrace, chiseled into a 5-foot-high statue, reflected that era’s fashion and a rekindled interest in Antiquity. It is now part of the Louvre’s permanent collection.
Antonio Canova (1757 – 1822) was an unrivaled Italian sculptor, internationally renowned for his Neoclassic works. Inspired by Antiquity, Canova expressed idealistic purity in his immense sculptures and bas-reliefs. Calling his anatomical studies the secret of his art, he also observed performers’ expressions and movements, and immersed himself in ancient and modern history. Canova’s works, which were characterized by a soft, mellow finish, were highly sought after by esteemed leaders such as Napoleon, Catherine the Great of Russia and the Duke of Wellington.
