Antonio Canova (1757-1822) was an Italian Neo-Ciassical sculptor, based in Rome from 1781.
He received commissions from popes, kings, and emperors for his highly finished marble portrait busts and groups. He made several portraits of Napoleon.
His reclining marble Pauline Borghese 1805-1807 (Borghese Gallery, Rome) is a fine example of cool, polished Classicism.
