Still (detail) from the film, "Psyche and Eros," 1994, by Alison de Vere.
Alison de Vere: Psyche and Eros
October 2, 2014 - January 4, 2015
Rotunda

This animated cartoon film, closely based on Apuleius’s moving story, is widely regarded as a masterpiece. Film animator Alison de Vere, who contributed to the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine in 1967, completed the 26 minutes long film for the British Channel 4 in 1994. Screened in the Museum’s Rotunda, the film provides a fascinating dialogue with the Baroque tapestries in an adjacent gallery.
