Sculptural work by Antonio Canova, this work commissioned in 1804 is located inside the Villa Borghese museum in Rome.
Commissioned by Prince Camillo Borghese, the statue is conceived as an example of classical beauty and formal balance, taking inspiration from Greco-Roman statuary.
Considered the most representative sculptor of neoclassicism, Canova sculpted the beauty of his sister Bonaparte, in the candid white Carrara marble.
