Antonia Canova and the Politics of Patronage in Revolutionary and Napoleonic Europe
Christopher M. Johns
0520212010
November 1998
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The Venetian sculptor Antonio Canova (1757-1822) was Europe's most celebrated artist from the end of the ancien régime to the early years of the Restoration, an era when the traditional relationship between patrons and artists changed drastically. Christopher M. S. Johns's refreshingly original study explores a neglected facet of Canova's career: the effects of patrons, patronage, and politics on his choice of subjects and manner of working. While other artists produced art in the service of the state, Canova resisted the blandishments of the political powers that commissioned his works.

Sculptural Imagination: Figurative, Modernist, Minimalist

From Library Journal
Potts (art history, Univ. of Reading, UK) has written a selective history of sculpture with an emphasis on sculpture theory and theorists from the late 18th century to the present. He casts a wide net among the theorists, from Johann Gottfried Herder through Walter Pater and Rainer Maria Rilke to Clement Greenberg and artist Donald Judd. Potts also discusses in detail a number of works by selected artists, from Antonio Canova and Auguste Rodin to Constantin Brancusi, David Smith, Carl Andre, Eva Hesse, and Louise Bourgeois. The author is good on assessing the impact of Minimalism on the practical accomplishments of mid- to late 20th-century sculpture and also very good on Minimalism's effect on theories about three-dimensional art objects.
