Canova at Galleria Borghese
Client : MondoMostre.
Said The Economist: ” The first things you see on entering an exhibition dedicated to Antonio Canova at Rome’s Galleria Borghese are two bottoms, as smooth and alluringly rounded as plums. You are looking at a familiar work—the sculptor’s “Three Graces” normally at the Hermitage in St Petersburg—but from an unaccustomed angle. To either side, there are other, equally provocative rumps belonging to recumbent nymphs on loan from the Victoria and Albert museum in London and the New York Metropolitan. The curators, you feel, are making a point.”
So began the editorial in the Economist, just one of the exceptional pieces of coverage obatined for this extraordinary show of Canova, in context at the Galleria Borghese in Rome.
