The carving of veiled figures had been popular in Italy during the 1700s. Artists like Raffaelo Monti revived this technically demanding tradition in reaction to the academic Neoclassicism of early nineteenth-century sculpture. The heightened realism and sensuous appeal of their works made sculpture once again a fashionable decorative element in upper-middle-class houses. Monti is known for marble busts draped in filmy veils, subtly modeled to suggest feminine allure.
