Artist: After William-Adolphe Bouguereau
Period: Late 19th/Early 20th Century
Dimension: 7 1/2 x 10 inches (plaque); 12 x 14 inches (framed)

This painting is a homage to the works of William-Adolphe Bouguereau, reimagined by artist R. Wagner, and bears the distinguished KPM mark, indicating its production by the Royal Porcelain Factory in Berlin. The plaque depicts a naked cherub, a motif synonymous with Bouguereau's style, seated on a fountain wall. The figure interacts tenderly with a butterfly, symbolizing the delicacy and ephemeral nature of life. The scene is set against a verdant background with classical elements, suggesting a harmonious blend of nature and antiquity. The artist's signature and the presence of the KPM scepter on the reverse side confirm its authenticity and provenance. The framed work is a study in classical beauty, capturing the viewer with its tranquility and the cherub's innocent engagement with the butterfly.
