Lecture by Lorenzo Pericolo

In his life of Guido Reni (published in 1678), Carlo Cesare Malvasia stresses the role of Guido in the emergence of the new “maniera moderna.” After reaching its apogee of perfection with the work of the three Carracci, especially of Ludovico, painting evolves toward a new epoch, the so-called “fourth age of painting.” In Malvasia’s view, Guido was both a protagonist and, to a great extent, a creator of a new “modernity.” In defining what comes after perfection, Malvasia struggles with the construction and definition of a new paradigm of artistic excellence only partially embodied by Guido’s work. This lecture by Lorenzo Pericolo will dwelve into the theorical understanding of Guido’s painting.
