Description   

Bouguereau's idealized treatment of the nude made him one of the most popular artists of his time. This painting, a small version of the composition he exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1880, may have been intended for a private home. In the picture a young girl playfully struggles with Eros (Cupid) to avoid love's arrow.
