By Marco Fabio Apolloni

Antonio Canova (1 November 1757 – thirteen October 1822) was once an Italian sculptor from the Republic of Venice who grew to become recognized for his marble sculptures that gently rendered nude flesh. The epitome of the neoclassical kind, his paintings marked a go back to classical refinement after the theatrical excesses of Baroque sculpture. between Canova's English scholars have been sculptors Sir Richard Westmacott and John Gibson.
