Postcard of the Week: L’Amour et Psyché, enfants

L'Amour et Psyché, enfants          This painting, L’Amour et Psyché, enfants, was created in 1890 by William-Adolphe Bougeureau and the subject of the painting stems from the story of Cupid and Psyche told by Apuleius in The Golden Ass. It popped through my letterbox in September 2011 all the way from Rome, as one of a series of about 8 or 9 postcards I received from my boyfriend during his big trip around Europe. At the time neither he nor I had any idea that these postcards would go on to form part of this blog. At the time I was just moving to Exeter to begin my last year at Exeter University, and the first thing I saw when I opened the door to my new house, laden down with a car’s worth of things, was a pile of lots of postcards. It was a particularly romantic beginning to the long-distance relationship, which sadly enough, 18 months later, is still long-distance… [sigh]
