About This Piece
The Art
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.

The Artist
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.

Print amazing, frame not what I expected
Purchased as 1 of 3 pieces to be placed in the master bathroom, all with the same theme/sculptor. The print is of great quality and very beautiful. My issue is with the frame. I wanted silver to match the grays, whites and powder blues in the bathroom. I looked at the detail of several "silver" options at least 10 times before choosing the Eastman silver. When it arrived, it was silver with black speckles, almost as if black paint was misted onto the frame. Also, what wasn't easy to discern from the online frame detail pictures is that the Eastman has black on the outsides of the frame and there is a line/shadow of black on the inner portion as well. It is hard to explain, but I would not choose this style of frame if you are looking for a true silver frame. The next time I ordered I chose the Berlin style silver frame and that was truly silver.
