Antonio Canova (1757–1822) was an Italian Neoclassical sculptor, famous for his marble sculptures. Often regarded as the greatest of the Neoclassical artists, his sculpture was inspired by the Baroque and the classical revival and has been characterised as having avoided the melodramatics of the former, and the cold artificiality of the latter.
Artist: Maria Carmela Colaneri
