Good chiaretta 2008-01-19 5:36

Sorry Cathy,
I don't want to critique your shot...
I think that this isn't a "greek" statue, that is a "calssical" greek statue: I think that is a "Neo-calssical" statue (perhaps belonging to XIX sec) and it seems a copy from an important Italian sculptor: Canova.
kind regards, Chiaretta ;-)

Default To chiaretta: Greek Statue

Hi Chiaretta:

Thank you for your comment on my picture indicating it comes from the neoclassical period. I did some searching on Canova's scluptures, which were very beautiful, but did not find this exact picture (only replicas that looked like this courtyard muse). Can you point me to the exact picture from the Italian sculpture Canova. I would be very interested in seeing it.

Thank you.

Cathy

Hi Cathy...
"your" statue is very similar to "Danzatrice con le mani sui fianchi" (Dancer with the arms akimbo), in Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg, made by Canova in 1812. I saw it during an exibition in Venice (Palazzo Grassi), and the catalogue (I have it) is very intersting.

Bye bye!!!

Default Danzatrice

(Wow) Chiara! Thank you for pointing out Danzatrice by Canova. It is indeed a beautiful statue (my most favorite)!

It is so graceful. I hope to see the original some day - like you.

Cathy

You're welcome!!!
I adore ancient greek statues... but I'm also a fan of neoclassicism, Canova in particular. I think they are particularly photogenic, and very plastic.
Bye... see yoou!
