designer loves art.. 53.. Canova

we haven't talked about sculptures in a while so here we go.
this is Antonio Canova
born in Venice he is considered the best sculptor of his time. he was greatly inspired by roman art. thus making him a Neoclassicist.
he worked in Paris for a while, during the war, and made several sculptures of Napoleon's family while basing them on classical mythological characters.
he had a great talent with marble, and most of his work can be perceived as tranquil subjects.
