More Information

The painting depicts the moment when Psyche receives the first kiss from Cupid, the butterfly to the leftsymbolizes the moment of sexual awakening. The style of the painting is Neo­Renaissance, likely tied to the style favoured by Venetian painters such asTitian and Veronese. It could be a copy after an original 16th c. composition most likely by the hand of anItalian painter. The brushwork and the overall execution belies a more modern hand particular in the face of the Cupid figurewhich does not have attributes of the older paintings. The painting, while painted in the style of the Italianmasters, is from a much later century
