EXHIBITED: United Society of Artists, 1933, no. 192
Originally trained as a stained glass artist, Salisbury displayed natural talent for painting, and won a scholarship to the Royal Academy Schools. He excelled at portraiture, for which he is best known now. Here, in a joyous departure from the exacting demands of portrait painting, Psyche, ensconced in rainbows, reaches into the fountain whilst Cupid kneels at her feet, collecting the precious droplets in a clay vessel. The picture was exhibited in 1933.
