The Prado Museum in Madrid is dedicating an exhibition to Italian artist Guido Reni in 2023.
This impressive exhibition showcases almost 100 works borrowed from over 40 museums, institutions, and collections in Europe and America. The exhibition presents a comprehensive overview of the career of Guido Reni, a renowned 17th-century artist from Bologna, and highlights his significant contribution to shaping the aesthetic universe of the European Baroque movement.
Visitors to the exhibition in Rooms A and B of the Jerónimos Building, running from March 28 to July 9 and organized in collaboration with the Städel Museum in Frankfurt, will have the rare opportunity to view major works by Guido Reni that are not often exhibited outside their usual locations. These include Triumph of Job from the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris, as well as other notable compositions like The Immaculate Conception from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Cleopatra from The Royal Collection in London, Drawing and Color from the Musée du Louvre in Paris, and Salomé with the Head of Saint John the Baptist and The Penitent Magdalene from the Gallerie Nazionale d’Arte Antica in Rome (Palazzo Barberini and Galleria Corsini).
In addition to these masterpieces, visitors can also enjoy outstanding examples from the Prado's own collection, many of which have been specially restored for the exhibition. These include Saint Sebastian, Hippomenes and Atalanta, Girl with a Rose, and The Virgin of the Chair.
