Giclee on Canvas
Price includes frame.
Guido Reni was a widely acclaimed painter and draughtsman in seventeenth-century Italy, renowned for his elegant interpretations of religious and mythological scenes. His style, which fused elements of classical idealism with close observation of the natural world, was perpetuated through the activity of an exceptionally large and productive studio and emulated by many artists across Europe.
Born in Bologna in 1575, Reni began training in his hometown alongside other notable artists before becoming an independent master in 1598. He moved to Rome in the early 1600s to work on the ceiling frescoes in renowned palaces and churches.
Reni is best known for large-scale altarpieces, mythological scenes, and single-figure devotional and secular subjects.
