This bronze is characteristic of George’s collection, the figures positioned to create drama. The god Mercury assists the mortal Psyche, who is borne on a column of cloud, to escape a Fury, representing the underworld. The bronze was purchased from the royal goldsmiths, Rundell, Bridge & Rundell, who as well as silver, supplied the king with sculptures, jewellery, insignia and even on occasion paintings.

Purchased in 1824
