The Marriage of Psyche - Brussels XVIIIth century - Tapestry
This tapestry from the eighteenth century representing the wedding of Psyche. Its imposing horizontal format allows us to appreciate the subject of banquet with numerous characters involved.
The originality of this piece is that the artist has chosen to give importance to the feast and arts illustrated in the foreground. Musicians, poets and singers celebrate the marriage of Cupid and Psyche.
The banquet takes place in the background, where Cupid and Psyche are sitting among their guests, and the two lovers are kissing.
This tapestry is in a perfect condition and its colours are wellpreserved.
