In this tapestry "Cupidon", we see the sensual Cupid by artist William Bouguereau from 1875. Known as a French academic artist, he created works which were composed of romanticism with classical subjects, yet with a new sensuality that was emerging in the arts at this time. As we can see here, Cupid is seen in an innocent yet sensual pose. His bow and arrows are on the ground behind him. The lush woods behind him and the atmospheric clouds provide a divine and evocative backdrop to this scene. The use of light in this scene is beautiful as he uses the light from a darkened sky to provide a soft light that evokes a sense of the overcast and almost rain impending climate in this scene, as well as showing the subject beautifully. This piece is considered one of Bouguereau's most well known and well loved works. This tapestry "Cupidon" is backed with lining and tunnel for easy hanging.
