Antonio Canova’s Hebe

December 1st, 2009

Under the pretext of compositions of grace and elegance, the statue of “Hebe” takes the foremost place in point of date. The artist has embodied four times in stone, the goddess of youth, and each time with some variation. The last one is in the Museum of Forlì, in Italy. The only material improvement, though, is the substitution of a support more suitable to the simplicity of the art. Each of the statues is, in all its details, in expression, attitude and delicacy of finish, strikingly elegant.

November 19th, 2009

In 1802, at the personal request of Napoleon, Canova returned to Paris to sculpt a bust of the first consul. The artist was entertained with benevolence, and various honors were conferred upon him. The statue, which is of colossal dimensions and entitled “Napoleon as Mars the Peacemaker”, was not finished till four years after. On the fall of the great emperor, his successor Louis XVIII presented this statue to the British government, by whom it was afterwards given to the Duke of Wellington.

Antonio Canova in France

October 13th, 2009

In 1815 he was commissioned by the Pope to oversee the transmission from Paris of those works of art which had formerly been conveyed there under the direction of Napoleon. Although his modesty forbade him to ever mention this but during this he showed an ever-active benevolence, especially towards the artists. By his passion and exertions – for there were many disagreeing interests to consider- he adjusted the affair in a manner at once creditable to his judgment and fortunate for his country.

Antonio Canova in England

October 13th, 2009

In the autumn of 1816 year he gratified his wish he had long cherished of visiting London, where he was acknowledged with the highest tokens of esteem. The artist for whom he showed particular sympathy and regard in London was Benjamin Haydon, who was then recently transported to England, and ignorantly depreciated by polite connoisseurs and also the one who might at the time be counted as the sole representative of historical painting in London, and whom he especially honored for his championship of the Elgin marbles. Among Canova’s English pupils were sculptors Sir Richard Westmacott and John Gibson.

The studies of Antonio Canova

October 13th, 2009

The early years of Canova passed in study; the bias of his intellect was to sculpture. In his ninth year he executed two small shrines of Carrara marble, which are still in existence. Amongst those who patronized his grandfather was the patrician family Falier of Venice, and by this means young Canova was first introduced to the senator of that name, who was later to become his most fervent patron. After the termination of this engagement he began to work on his own account and the some monks provided him with his first workshop. Here he labored for four years with the greatest perseverance.
