Antonio Canova’s Hebe

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

Under the pretext of compositions of grace and elegance, the statue of “Hebe” takes the foremost place in point of date. The artist has embodied four times in stone, the goddess of youth, and each time with some variation. The last one is in the Museum of Forlì, in Italy. The only material improvement, though, is the substitution of a support more suitable to the simplicity of the art. Each of the statues is, in all its details, in expression, attitude and delicacy of finish, strikingly elegant.
