Description

This bronze is based on the popular painting of the same subject by William Adolphe Bouguereau of 1895. Here, the sculptor successfully translated the weightlessness of the two figures into three dimensions as Cupid seems to lift his lover from the ground. Henri Godet was a pupil of Mathurin Moreau, and exhibited at both the Salon and the Société Nationale des Beaux Arts in the 1890s.
