Cupid and Psyche1706
Wallace Collection, London
Little work by Cayot survives, but the Cupid and Psyche, signed and dated 1706, is remarkable for its accomplishment. Its pervasive infantile grace is such that Psyche too has become a child - a very unusual motif - but the play between the two children is hardly innocent.
