Venus Victrix by Canοva
 Canova’s marble sculpture of 1804- 08 epitomizes neo-classical nude beauty, is Napoleon’s sister Pauline, Princess Borghese (1780 -1825), portrayed as Venus, reclining on an equally finely shaped sofa. Disobedient to Napoleon like all his siblings, and notorious for her promiscuity which was on a classical Roman scale of its own, she was the only one who was loyal to him in exile on Elba.
