Allegory of Learning

Guido Reni

* 1575 in Bologna † 1642 in Bologna

Etching. Size of sheet: 15.4 x 18.5 cm.

Literature:        Bartsch XVIII.289.16.

                       T.I.B. Vol. 40. 05.024  

Very fine impression of the only state, with plate tone and wiping marks. Trimmed onto the plate mark and into the plate.  The plate has two unusually wide plate margins on the right and left side, which many of the impressions listed in T.I.B. are trimmed into, as does ours. They do not affect the composition. Small paper loss in the upper left.

An early draft for the print is in Windsor Castle (inv. 3296).
