Narrative: TENERANI, the sculptor of this figure, is little known in England, though he takes rank among the most renowned living artists (in 1857) in Europe. He is a native of Cariara, and occupies the position of Professor of Sculpture in the Academy of St. Luke, at Rome; his studies, of which he has three or four large ones in and about the Piazza Barharini, are filled with casts and models of his numerous beautiful works. Of his mythological sculptures we may particularly mention " Psyche Swooning "โ€”an exceedingly beautiful and delicate work in the modeling; "Cupid extracting a Thorn from the Foot of Venus," a commission from the late Emperor of Russia; and the " Flora," here engraved, a commission from our own Queen, which is poetically described by the writer whom we have before quoted as " a nymph of extreme youth charmingly beautiful, joyously advancing, like a ' returning diver, gleeful with his pearls; ' her lap piled with flowers, which seem to drop around her, she lightly skims on the ambrosial gales, shedding forth ' streams of rich distilled perfume.' " This subject has so frequently engaged the labors of sculptors, that it could be strange indeed to find any novelty in the treatment of it; undoubtedly there is none hereโ€”no new reading, nothing but an elegant and poetical rendering of a theme ever pleasing to contemplate. The portrait statues of this sculptor take high rank in this department of his art; two of these are especially worth, pointing out,โ€”a Seated statue of the Princess Marie, daughter of, and executed for, the late Emperor of Russia; and another seated statue of the late Count Rossi, murdered by a Roman mob, a few years since, during an emeute of the populace.
