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.
This premium giclée print, an upgrade from the standard giclée print, is produced on thick (310 gsm), textured watercolor paper with the same vivid colors, accuracy, and exceptional resolution giclée prints are known for. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto a high-quality paper. The smooth transitions of color gradients make giclée prints appear much more realistic than other prints.
