Professor Vittorio Caradossi was a Florentine sculptor and was active during the late 19th and early 20th century. In contrast to his many large public monuments, Caradossi was famed for his sensuous female allegorical nude sculptures. He was distinguished for his highly decorative style with elaborate compositions. This figure of Amenaide is a gentle and modest depiction of the young heroine, which is emphasised by the drapery clinging to the curve of her hip. In the present sculpture, rather than focussing on the dramatic circumstances of the play, Caradossi accomplishes a moment of intimate reflection.
