Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 2
2. Is a full length figure of Venus, receiving the Apple from Paris. Tenerand, a pupil of Canova, is the author, and shows not only the natural genius of the sculptor, but also the pure and refined taste of the Canova school. It was made for the gallery of Florence for which he was to receive 3,500 crowns. No description can do justice to the perfection of its form or the exquisite grace of its attitude. [P. 14; exhibited under heading: "Marble Statuary."]
