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 1,110 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

This series will examine problems of wars and the arts from pre-modern through modern times with focus on the ambiguities that intrigue artists and us. We properly express revulsion for war's human and ethical costs, but are fascinated by the artistic renderings -- of acts of virtue and of violence -- brought forth by war
