EDITORS COMMENTS
This print titled "Paris leaning on a tree stump, 1817" transports us back to the enchanting world of 19th-century art. Created by the talented Giovanni Battista Balestra, this frontal view captures every intricate detail of the sculpture from his series "Oeuvre de Canova: Recueil de Statues. . . ". The image showcases a male figure, Paris, barefoot and dressed in an elegant headgear adorned with leaves. With one hand gesturing gracefully and the other resting on a tree stump, Paris exudes both strength and vulnerability. His cap of liberty adds a touch of symbolism to the composition, hinting at notions of freedom and revolution that were prevalent during that era. The engraving technique used by Giovanni Tognolli beautifully enhances every line and contour of this masterpiece. It is evident that great care was taken to preserve Antonio Canova's original vision through this meticulous reproduction. Displayed against a simple background, this artwork invites us into its timeless beauty. As we admire it today in all its monochromatic glory, we are reminded of the rich artistic heritage Italy holds within its borders. This piece serves as a testament to both Canova's genius as a sculptor and Balestra's skill as an artist capturing it for posterity. Now housed in the Hermitage Museum, this print allows us to appreciate not only the craftsmanship but also offers insight into historical figures such as Josephine Beauharnais - Empress Josephine herself - who played significant roles during those transformative times.
