Psyche Wandering

1880. Etching and aquatint on chine-collé, 25.4 x 17.5cm (image), 36.3 x 27cm (plate).

From Cupid and Psyche (Opus V), plate 28. Ref: Singer #91.

Cupid and Psyche is a love story about overcoming obstacles from the novel Metamorphoses written in the 2nd century by Apuleius. During the Renaissance his novel was rediscovered and has since been extensively used as an inspiration for art, music and literature.

German Symbolist Max Klinger stated that he found illustrating the Cupid and Psyche text to be extremely challenging. Klinger’s Opus V, comprising of 46 etchings: 15 full page, 31 with text, was published in 1880. Ref: University of Melbourne, Columbia University, Art Institute of Chicago.
