Sculptures inspired by love

Sculptures inspired by love

Throughout history, the romantic sentiment has attracted the attention of many artists, so much so that some of them decided to express their vision of love in beautiful sculptures. And, today, romance continues to capture the imagination of artists and the public. For this reason, and with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, we would like to show you some sculptures inspired by love.

“Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss”, by Antonio Canova

A sculpture inspired by the story of the Roman god of love, Cupid (Eros), and Psyche, a human turned goddess. It represents the moment when Eros brings Psyche round from her sleep through a kiss.

It is a work created to be seen from the front, although its details are not neglected.


“The Kiss”, by Rodin

Rodin was originally inspired by Paolo and Francesca, two characters from Dante’s Divine Comedy, who were killed by Francesca’s husband. However, Rodin thought that the sculpture conveyed sensuality and happiness and decided to call it: The kiss.


“Apollo and Daphne”, by Bernini

Sometimes love is unrequited, as in the case of Apollo and Daphne. Eros shot an arrow at Apollo that made him fall in love with Daphne, but he shot an arrow at her that made her want to be free from Apollo. She had no choice but to turn herself into a tree to escape from Apollo.

With this sculpture Bernini perfectly captures the exact moment when Apollo catches up with Daphne and she begins to turn herself into a tree.
