162 in Claude's 'Liber Veritatis', the artist's own pictorial record of his work, now in the British Museum. Depicts Psyche's grief at the departure of Cupid. A lonely figure in a deserted landscape, a mood of dreamy enchantment and Arcadian tranquillity such as appealed to the Romantics.
Painted for Lorenzo Onofrio Colonna, Grand Constable of the Kingdom of Naples.
