Madonna is an allusion to Venus and Psyche

Madonna as portrayed on the canvas is an allusion to Venus and Psyche. In this painting it is easy to see the merging of both these allegoric figures, especially of the latter. Psyche: Greek word signifying soul.   The myth of Psyche is narrated in the book The Golden Ass by Apuleius who describes her as a beautiful mortal for whom Eros, the god of love, falls in love.  Psyche is so beautiful that Venus, goddess of beauty and love and mother of Eros, becomes furious because men stop worshiping

Madonna source of inspiration

In the paintig, Madonna is love, grace and delight; she is mystifying the marvellous glory of passion in paramount service of her ideal: eternal youth, beauty and spirituality.

Madonna as portrayed on the canvas is an allusion to Venus and Psyche

Throughout time, the painters who marked the History of Art developed themes dominated by mythological symbolism and were influenced, according to Freud’s theories, by  dreams of surreal images that reveal our capacity to interpret experiences with the unconscious. Madonna as portrayed on the canvas is an allusion to Venus and Psyche. In this painting it is easy to see the merging of both these allegoric figures, especially of the latter. Psyche: Greek word signifying soul.
