Exhibition Catalogs
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 11
By GUIDO RENI, a celebrated Italian Historical Painter, born at Bologna, in 1574, and died in 1643, aged 63; he was, at first, a disciple of Dennis Calvert, a Fleming of great reputation; but afterwards he entered himself in the school of the Caracci; he carefully studied the style of those great Masters, but imitated that of Lodivico preferably to Annibale or Agestino [sic], because there appeared more of grandeur and grace in his compositions, than in those of the others; and his first compositions were entirely in the manner of that Master. The works of Guido are highly esteemed. [P. 6.]
