Antonio Canova and the politics of patronage in revolutionary and Napoleonic Europe by Christopher M. S Johns ( )
14 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The sculptor Antonio Canova was the most celebrated artist of a perilously protean and fractious era. In revolutionary and Napoleonic Europe, while other artists bent to the will of the political powers that commissioned their work, producing art in the service of the state, Canova managed to resist both threats and blandishments. Although he held strong opinions on the issues of his day, he avoided direct political or ideological engagement in his sculpture. Christopher M. S. Johns presents the first sustained study of Canova's career in relation to his patrons and contemporary politics. In it he enlarges our understanding of an artist whose work is crucial to the evaluation of European art and political history."--BOOK JACKET
