- The Print
- The Artist
Tenderness, yearning, passion and the exultation of desire fulfilled are all conveyed in the emotionally charged marble sculpture, “Cupid and Psyche, 1796” by Antonio Canova. From Italy, Canova (1757 – 1822) was the most successful and influential sculptor of the Neoclassical movement. The legend of the two lovers in his piece is based upon a story from the 2nd century, in which the immortal Cupid revives the dying Psyche with a kiss. The 5-foot-high statue of their ecstatic embrace was aligned with the fashion of that era and a renewed interest in Antiquity. It is now displayed in Paris’ Louvre.
Antonio Canova (1757 – 1822) was the most internationally successful and influential sculptor of Neoclassicism. Often influenced by themes from Antiquity, the colossal sculptures and bas-reliefs created by the Italian artist were imbued with idealistic purity. Canova thoroughly studied anatomy, which he called the secret of his art. He also observed the expressions and mannerisms of performers, and familiarized himself with ancient and modern history. He distinguished his works by employing a special method of permeating marble with a soft, mellow appearance. Canova's work was in great demand by luminaries such as Napoleon, Catherine the Great of Russia and the Duke of Wellington.
