Description
Antonio Canova (1757-1822) was an Italian sculptor, painter, draughtsman and architect. He was the most innovative and widely acclaimed sculptor of Neo-classicism. His development during the 1780s of a new style of revolutionary severity and idealistic purity led many of his contemporaries to prefer his ideal sculptures to such previously universally admired Antique statues as the Medici Venus and the Farnese Hercules, thus greatly increasing the prestige of 'modern' sculpture. He was also much in demand as a portrait sculptor, often combining a classicizing format with a naturalistic presentation of features.Grove Dictionary of Art
