Description

A black and white collection of figures dressed and modeled in a classical style standing on a fluffy cloud bank overlooking the countryside. The figures cluster around a caped figure who holds the reigns to two horses. They are led by a cherub with a torch and a flying maiden holding flowers. The original image is a fresco by Guido Reni, an Italian High Baroque painter, found in Palazzo Rospigliosi in Rome (1616). This image later inspired the work of Italian draftsman Antonio Cavallucci and printmaker Raphael Morghen. Sight: 32" x 48 1/2", Composition: 25" x 41 2/2". http://www.mlahanas.de/Greeks/Mythology/Master6.html
