Description: GUIDO RENI (CIRCLE OF) A superb original oil on canvas undertaken almost certainly by a member of the circle of Italian baroque painter Guido Reni (1575-1642). This 19" x 25" unsigned work depicts an angel with halo, right hand raised with index finger pointed skyward, with two red sashes crossing the figure's chest. The painting, restored at one time, has had a bit of the restoration "spring" to the left of the figure's face, exposing a zig-zag 4" surface split which could be restored. This painting is nearly identical to a section of Reni's painting "The Annunciation", ca. 1627-29, now held at the Louvre. It may be a variant replica made by Reni himself, or a copy by a student, perhaps Simone Cantarini. The painting is accompanied by a significant amount of research undertaken by its previous owner. Reni painted several Annunciations: another is at the Quirinal Palace in Rome.

Description: Guido Reni (1575 Calvenzano - 1642 Bologna) Werkstatt attr.;Kopf der KleopatraBildnis Kleopatras mit geschmücktem, langem Haar, den Kopf ins Profil wendend. Die außerordentlich hohe Qualität dieses Gemäldes, das einst Teil einer größeren Komposition war, zeigt sich besonders in der subtilen Darstellung ihrer Mimik, in der virtuosen Lichtführung und Ausführung des Inkarnats sowie in den Lichtreflexen auf ihrer Wange. Die Stilcharakteristika verweisen auf ein Werk Guido Renis bzw. seiner Werkstatt. Vergleiche lassen sich u.a. zu den um 1625-30 entstandenen, berühmten Gemälden gleichen Themas "Tod der Kleopatra" bzw. "Kleopatra mit der Aspisviper" in Potdam-Sanssouci und in der königlichen Sammlung in Windsor Castle ziehen. Öl/Lwd.; am rechten Bildrand Künstler-Bez. "Guido (...). 35 cm x 30,5 cm. Rahmen.
