c1893 French CUPID Print The Awakening of Love Leon Perrault ROSES Paris Bird Cherub
It is entitled "The Awakening of Love" (or Le Reveil de L'Amour), and was originally painted and exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1891. It was used for the 1893 World's Columbia Exposition Fair at Chicago, IL. It is a chromolithograph, with lovely color hues. The little cupid has just awoken, stirred from his sleep among a bed of roses and sweet songbirds overhead. The facial expression is just beautiful.
The print has a light beige mat, and is housed in a quarter-sawn oak frame with lovely minial ray grain. Each corner has a burnished brass embellishment with flowers and scrolls, mimicking the soft rounded shapes in the print. I hardly ever get this print anymore, and it is beautiful. The print has the customary wear, but is in VG condition, with just a very teenie hole at the top left margin, about 4" over from the mat, hard to see, but mentioned for accuracy. The overall size with the VG++ frame is aprox 15.5 x 19.25 inches.
