Guido Reni. "Landscape with playing Cherubs"
Dal 10 September al 9 January
Unicum. Tales at the Museum, curated by Massimo Pulini

Phone: 0541 793851

As part of the Unicum exhibition. Tales at the Museum, the painting by Guido Reni, Landscape with cupids, is presented.

The work is a landscape with Scherzi di amorini (Jokes of Cherubs) (oil on canvas, 77x60), re-emerged on the antiques market and already attributed to Francesco Albani (or to his school), and is now recognized as a rare masterpiece of Guido Reni's early production, commissioned by Odoardo Farnese with a provenance from the secret dressing rooms of the Palazzetto Farnese.

The very refined hand is, according to the scholar Massimo Pulini, that of Guido Reni (Bologna, 1575-1642): “a careful and fluid hand, capable of descending into botanical details and of maintaining an algid, clear chromatic register; to move all the virtuosity of the pictorial orchestra without losing even for a moment the harmony of the whole ".

Period of development: until 9 January 2022

Time: from Tuesday to Friday 10.00 am to 1.00pm and 4.00pm to 7.00pm; Saturday and Sunday 10am to 7.00pm
