Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited with text by Bastian Eclercy. Text by Maria Aresin, Babette Bohn, Aoife Brady, Raffaella Morselli.

Guido Remi (1575–1642) was the star painter of the Italian Baroque and one of Europe’s most successful artists in his lifetime, widely sought after by prominent patrons. Whether creating depictions of a Christian heaven or the world of Greek and Roman classical mythology, Reni was unmatched in his ability to translate divine themes into painting, a knack that earned him the epithet “il divino.” Misunderstood and somewhat marginalized after his death, the work of Reni is now undergoing a significant rediscovery.
Drawing on new research, this catalog accompanying a major exhibition at the Städel Museum provides insights into his artistic activities and his ambiguous personality. Bringing together his fascinating paintings, drawings and etchings for the first time in more than 30 years, it offers a new perspective on one of the greatest figures of Italian art.
