An art lover of my acquaintance rhapsodises over the beautiful bottoms that Antonio Canova created in his sculptures. I have to agree with his judgment.
In Dorsoduro, I noticed this bricked in archway or portal.
When I went closer, here is what I saw. I think Canova would be proud to claim that as his work!

(I didn’t know he had done a nude statue of Napoleon!)
Or, have a look at this blog site, for his Three Graces.
