Large Marble Grouping of "Cupid and Psyche" after A. Canova, Signed C. Lapini

About

A magnificent and large carved Italian Carrara marble grouping of "Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss", Modeled After Antonio Canova, signed Cesare Lapini. The subjects are shown to be moving toward each other for a kiss. The cupid figure is holding the psyche figure in a dipped position with the cupids arm covering the front of her naked body. The back of both subjects are exposed, demonstrating the incredible hand-chisel work accomplished by Lapini. Intricate detail was placed on each subject, with perfectly life-like and proportional figures. A similar, smaller piece, with dimensions 26.75 by 32 in, was sold in Sotheby's for $50,313. Signed on the back side, C. Lapini. Italy, circa 1870-1880.
