This cupid and woman are lamenting the loss of a loved one. Elegy (1899) was painted by William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905), who liked to reinterpret popular artistic themes in a creative way. In this case, it is probably not that someone died. The presence of the cupid seems to indicate that the woman's relation just failed. And as the cupid feels responsible for this, he is equally sad about it. #Art #Painting #artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #Love #Loss #Lamenting #Elegy #Sad #Cupid #Mythological #Myth #Angel #Classical #AcademicArt #Bouguereau
