Product Description


Many years ago, Emil Kauffman illuminated the topic of the architects of the Age of Reason; Anna Ottani Cavina's [title] is a new episode of the very same history, the history of modernity.

(Enrico Castelnuovo L'Indice)

The success of Anna Ottani Cavina's enterprise, allowing us henceforth to look differently at some luminous drawings and paintings, makes one yearn all the more to be able one day to look at the ambitious history paintings of the late eighteenth-century with the same penetration and sympathy.

(Philippe Bordes Burlington Magazine)


With both a delicate touch and profound erudition, these three essays rejuvenate traditional readings of Neoclassicism. By concentrating on unfamiliar examples and unexpected themes--whether the décor of a palatial bathroom, the new subjectivity of experiencing antiquity as both past and future, or the ways in which the architecture of Italy was recreated by foreign artists--Cavina opens one vista after another, with tonic results that subtly alter our vision of late eighteenth-century art.

(Robert Rosenblum, Professor of Fine Arts, New York University)
