TITLE OF PRINT: "Psyche And Zephyr"

DATE PRINTED: 1902

This beautiful & rare black & white antique/vintage art print is over 100 years old.

From a painting by Artist W. Kray.

SIZE: The dimensions of the image are 7" 3/4 x 5" inches and the overall print measures roughly 9" x 6".

INFO REGARDING PRINT: Story of Psyche and Zephyr:

Zephyr was the gentle wind of the west and the interceder between the World of the living and the Underworld. Zephyr was the fresh wind who brought the spring rains that were so valuable for awakening the nature.

Psyche, the youngest of three daughters of a king, was so beautiful that she was worshipped as a second Venus. Jealous of her rival, the goddess called her son Cupid and commanded him to inspire Psyche with love for some abject wretch. Psyche is wafted by a zephyr to a palace, where she becomes the bride of Cupid, who, however, only comes to her under cover of night. Her sisters visit her and, making her believe that her husband is a serpent, persuade her to light a lamp and look at him while he sleeps. Astonished at the divine beauty of her husband, her hand trembles, and a drop of oil from the lamp falls upon him and awakens him, and to punish her for her curiosity he flies away and leaves her. Long wandering and many trials follow, but Jupiter at last thwarts the schemes of Venus, restores the lovers to each other, and bestows immortality upon Psyche.

* This is NOT a recent reproduction or copy but a GENUINE authentic antique print from the date stated - money back guarantee! I do not sell modern reproductions. The print is much crisper and more detailed than my picture shows. Please always note measurements above, as the image may appear larger or smaller than the actual print.

Note: Engravings, photogravures, chromolithograph's, typogravures (steel engraving), lithographs etc. that I offer are prints, i.e. an image(s) printed on paper.

Terminology: The specific designation of each antique print, which is also indicated at the top of my auction pages (Engraving, Photogravure, etc.), is based on the technique that was used to produce it.

I have over 20 years of studying antique
paper. Please email me with any questions you have.

Thank You!

Frequently asked questions about HadesMuse

To insure a safe delivery I mail out 99% of the prints in an acid-free sleeve, shipped flat inside a sturdy rigid envelope, protected with thick cardboard.
Yes, all my prints are genuine original antique prints from the date stated. I do not sell modern reproductions.
I will include a "care of your antique print" information sheet with your purchase.
Please keep in mind the prints I sell have been around for 100 years or more. Individual pieces may have seen many owners and been handled many times over the course of their existence. As a result each piece has developed a history of its own. Short edge splits, foxing, discoloration, etc. are all things to expect on prints of this age. They rarely distract from the beauty of the print and add to the overall character of the item. When you receive your print remember that you are not handling a modern copy, you are holding a piece of history!
Foxing is an age-related process that causes spots and browning on old paper.
