Following the examples of antique sculpture, Antonio Canova together with Jacques Louis David (1748–1825) created a new aesthetic ideal based on the simplicity, grandeur and perfect beauty of antique art. This marble bust stands out with its carefully crafted smooth surface, clarity of plastic and shape. It reflects the style of neoclassicism and the virtuosity of Canova.
