Provides a major review of the achievements of renowned Neo-Classical sculptor Antonio Canova (1757-1822), featuring reproductions and detailed individual discussions of 146 works including 38 sculptures (mainly portrait busts and mythological figures), more than 60 drawings and preparatory sketches, and some 50 bozzetti, models, reliefs and paintings. Diverse aspects of Canova's career and oeuvre are examined in 18 scholarly essays treating such topics as his sculptural techniques and working methods, his stature as a connoisseur of antique sculpture and his highly personal interpretation of Classical themes, his design of a temple at Possagno modeled on the Parthenon and the Pantheon, and the critical reception of his work during his lifetime.
