The hand and face of Antonio Canova
From 10 October 2008 to 01 March 2009
One curiosity (though not for the faint-hearted!): the exhibition also lives up to its title literally as the Hand and face of Canova: on loan from the Accademia of Venice is the artists right arm, removed immediately after his death and preserved as a relic in a granite urn.
In addition to the focus on the psychology of the artist, the exhibition also provides a highly interesting analysis of how the myth of Canova arose and grew to such proportions.
