Canova. The Sign of the Glory

Drawings, paintings and sculptures
Museo di Roma
Type: Documentaries

The exhibition, open from 5 December, 2012 until April 7, 2013 aims to recount the birth of ideas of this important artist, his sketches that announce later masterpieces.

The Museum of Rome - Palazzo Braschi  will host the major exhibition “Canova. The Sign of the Glory. Drawings, paintings and sculptures“, from 5 December, 2012 until April 7, 2013.

The 79 drawings have been selected from the 1800-piece collection constituting the largest in the world of art by an artist, donated in the mid-nineteenth century to the newly inaugurated Museo Civico of Bassano by Giambattista Sartori Canova, half-brother of the artist and his universal heir. The drawings are accompanied by 15 etchings of the works, 6 original plaster models, 4tempera, an oil painting,  two terracottas and two marbles that show the transition the concept stage to the production of the artwork. A choice that presents a unique historical context of Europe between eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, clarifying the role of Canova as the first real modern artist.
