Sig. Baratta is one of the most eminent of modern sculptors. This piece is one of his finest originals; and in its exquisite lines, shows the unerring touch of genius. The pose, the air of repose, the voluptuous beauty of figure, are all in keeping with the Greek conception of the goddess. [P. 58.] The statue is erected in the finest Carrara marble. [P. 61; engraving on p. 61 depicts a seated nude female figure with wings, gazing downward.]
