CXD Venus, her jealousy inflamed by Psyche's beauty, sent Cupid to make Psyche fall in love with the most despicable man she might happen to meet. But Cupid himself fell in love with Psyche and brought her to his palace, where he made love to her every night. The painting shows Cupid leaving at dawn so that the sleeping Psyche could never know his identity. This picture was painted while the artist was in exile in Brussels. The work's eroticism is a departure from David's earlier sober and moralizing pictures.
