Review

Statuette in bisque porcelain of the Rudolstadt-Volkstedt factory representing Psyche as a small girl hiding the bow of Cupid. Her hair is raised in a bun. The eyes with hollowed out pupils show the ingenuity of Etienne-Maurice Falconnet to give life to his figures. The subject rests on a three-legged base highlighted with garlands of flowers and pattern of leaves in gilt brass. The figure is marked under the foot and numbered in hollow 1298.

 

This model was created by Etienne-Maurice Falconnet (1716-1791) in 1761 for Mme de Pompadour who owned a counterpart called "L'Amour Menaçant" from 1757. This representation of the myth of Love and Psyche had a great success during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
