"Cupid And Psyche"- This beautiful & rare black & white antique/vintage art print is over 100 years old. This is a "Artotype Engraving" (style of print) that was printed in 1893.

DETAILS: Artist, Lionel Royer

DESCRIPTION OF PRINT: The early rival of Venus (Psyche) is said to have received the embraces of her lover during the night only, and was enjoined by him to refrain from curiosity as to his looks. But Psyche could not resist the temptation to light her lamp while Cupid was asleep to see if he was indeed the monster that her sister's had told her he was. When Psyche went to look upon Cupid's face oil from her lamp dripped upon his cheek and awakened him. Cupid punished Psyche by taking flight never to return.

This picture depicts the last night of love Cupid and Psyche had together before she betrays him. Psyche is seated upon a bronze couch, slightly bent toward the half-kneeling Cupid, who lifts her veil and kisses her.

SIZE: The overall dimensions of the image are approximately 11" x 8" 1/2 inches. Actual picture is approximately 7" X 10".

A "How To Care For Your Antique Print" guide is included with your order.

This Antique Art Print would look gorgeous matted & framed. What a wonderful & unique gift for yourself or someone special. One of the pleasures of life is owning a real piece of 19th Century Art!

Also great for crafts - perfect for collage, scrap-booking, cards, mixed media arts, etc.

PLEASE NOTE: This FRAMEABLE print is from a rare antique art journal. There may be text below the image describing the print (text might not be shown in picture). The reverse side of the print has a picture and/or text. (This does not show through to the other side). The print is untrimmed & printed on medium sturdy paper stock.

There is no foxing (yellow or brown age marks/spots) on the actual picture/engraving/print. Other very minor marks might exist, and/or very minor foxing around the BORDER (mark would not show when framed).

* 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 engravings), lithographs etc. that I offer are prints, i.e. an image(s) printed on paper from the date specified.

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 used to produce it.

I have 16 years of studying antiquarian 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 yellow or brown spots on old paper.
