The Canova is part of the Genio Creativo series, honouring the world’s greatest artists, writers and thinkers. Antonio Canova (1757 – 1822) was a renowned Italian sculptor, known best for his work in marble. The cap, grip section and piston cone and crafted from black resin, with the trim being bronze. The real star of the show is the marble composite barrel, which depicts his famous sculpture The Graces, or “Grazie”. The clip is shaped like a pleated drape, which Canova used to clad his models.

 

 

The pen is fitted with an 18k fine nib. It uses the Montegrappa ratchet piston, so your choice here is bottled ink.
