Description Antonio Conova's statue, "Hebe," shown at the Louisville Industrial Exposition of 1872.

Samuel W. Thomas notes, "Antonio Canova's Hebe, the Greek goddess of youth, was exhibited at the Louisville Industrial Exposition, which opened on the northeast corner of Fourth and Chestnut streets in 1872. (The Industrial Exposition site was purchased in 1883 for the U.S. Post Office, which was razed in 1943.) The marble statue had been sold in 1871 by Louisville monument maker Michael Muldoon for $10,000 to the Polytechnic Society of Kentucky, forerunner of the Louisville Free Public Library. The work is now on loan to the Speed Art Museum, where it has been conserved and is on display. " [February 2004] Taken from The Filson Newsmagazine, volume 4, number 2.
