As the subject of painting or sculpture, the story of Amor and Psyche became a lot more popular during the 18th and in the 19th century. Jacques-Louis David’s massive (241×184 cm) painting, which now hangs in the Cleveland Museum of Art, dates from 1817, when the artist was nearly seventy years old. He seems to take little interest in the mythological or allegorical aspects of the story. Note how Cupid’s wings blend into the bed sheet. In the end, it’s just a picture of two teenage lovers, and Cupid seems quite proud of his conquest.
