Hebe. (White Marble)

£1,995

Price excludes VAT

A fine life-sized hand carved marble reproduction of Antonio Canova's statue of Hebe 1800-1805. She stands 1640 mm tall. Hebe is one of  Antonio Canova’s most successful and recognisable models. From 1795 it was frequently praised for its originality, signifying Canova’s transcendence of the sculptors of antiquity, and became the subject of many sonnets and poems. Canova let Hebe glide from the clouds, pouring the wine she served to the gods. The weightless, rhythmically arranged drapes provide a sense of movement whilst the bared upper body adds to the sensuality of the youthful goddess. No less than four full-size versions were commissioned from Canova by some of the great collectors of the age and further versions were executed after the great sculptor’s death by several members of the workshop.
