An important original oil painting by the German artist Paul Thumann titled "Psyche". This groundbreaking erotic and risque winged fairy image was the artist's most revered work. Thumann brought this painting to The United States in 1893 and sold the reproduction rights to "White Rock Table Water" for use in print ads and tin lithographic tip trays (a period example is included with sale). This was acquired by the prestigious Vose Gallery in Boston in 1913 and was framed at that time by them in a hand carved, signed and numbered Carrig-Rohane wide profile Arts & Crafts frame that like the painting is of museum quality.
