CANOVA Antonio (b. 1757, Possagno, d. 1822, Venezia) Nationality : Italian

Italian sculptor. Called "the supreme minister of beauty" and "a unique and truly divine man" by contemporaries, Antonio Canova was considered the greatest sculptor of his time. He was brought up as a mason and already had his own studio, in Venice, by 1774. He became the most famous Neoclassical sculptor whose international reputation surpassed even those of Flaxman, Thorvaldsen and Gibson. His early work is still very much in the 18th- century tradition, and reminiscent of French portrait sculpture (e.g. Houdon) in its liveliness, but by 1779 he had been converted to Neoclassical theory and this was confirmed by his visit to Rome and Naples in 1780 and his residence in Rome from 1781.
