Academic Study of the Head of Paris by Canova (plaster copy)

57 cm x 46.5 cm
Charcoal pencil drawing on matte paper. Excellent conservation conditions.
Plaster casts from nineteenth-century academies often drew inspiration not only from classical antiquity but also from the works of great masters of the past, such as Michelangelo, and contemporaries like Antonio Canova.

Among Canova's plaster casts, three were particularly popular: Paris, Helen, and Calliope. This drawing represents one of the many examples of academic exercises based on the most important plaster statues.

Students focused on the chiaroscuro effect and detailed representation of the face.

The drawing of Paris is executed with mastery using charcoal, giving the face a majestic, realistic, and three-dimensional appearance, while the curly hair is rendered with a grisaille effect.
