Updated: Feb 28, 2019



In the 1940’s, Walter Anderson carved a series of 300 groundbreaking large-scale linoleum blocks, among the first of their size in American art history.



Taken from classic myths, fairy tales, and legends, these fairy tale block prints often feature moments of transformation. One of these blocks depicted the Greek myth, Cupid and Psyche, which tells a story of transformation and enlightenment as the mortal woman, Psyche, becomes the goddess of the soul after a series of trials leading to her union with Cupid.
