Montegrappa Antonio Canova Fountain Pen - Bronze
Genio Creativo Limited Edition of 260

Antonio Canova (1 November 1757 – 13 October 1822) was an Italian sculptor famous for his work in marble. Often regarded as the greatest of the neoclassical artists, his work was inspired by the Baroque and the classical revival, but made more contemporary by dispensing with the melodrama of the former and adding a human element to the latter.

The daughters of Zeus symbolize beauty, elegance and mirth in Antonio Canova’s 'The Three Graces' ('Le Tre Grazie'). The Venetian sculptor’s neoclassical masterpiece is the subject of this limited edition formed from the dust of finest Carrara marble into a luxury writing implement of rare splendor and grace. A clip evoking the pleated drapes of Canova’s models completes a piece made to delight the ancient Gods.

Recalling the visual presence of Canova’s sculptures, the marble element is naturally grey. According to legend, Canova would pass over the freshly-chiselled, once-white stone with a cloth soaked with water, the same one used to wash the sculpting tools. The stone would absorb the dirt and acquire a more natural look.

Further details paying homage to Canova are the signature clip in the form of a pleated drape with which the artist used to clad his models, while the bronze or gold trim enriched with decorative motifs often crowning antique amphorae. The Genio Creativo Canova Fountain pen is cartridge or converter fed, and the nib is in 18k gold, engraved with the same symbol as the cap top, signifying the heraldic coat of arms of the family.

Limited Edition of 260, the exact number of years since Canova's birth.
