CANOVA. I VOLTI IDEALI
curated by Omar Cucciniello and Paola Zatti

24 October 2019 – 15 March 2020


At the peak of his career, Antonio Canova, the most famous and requested sculptor of his time, began to develop a new kind of bust called “ideal head”, which gained great popularity among his contemporaries. This topic let him investigate the infinite variations of ideal beauty. 

The exhibit, starting from “Vestale”- one of the neoclassical masterpieces of GAM – retraces the genesis and the evolution of this genre, across focused comparisons and a selection of high quality works.
