In 1750 The Recueil d’estampes d’apres les plus celeres tableaux de la Galerie Royale de Drede
(The Dresden Gallery ) invited artists from all over Europe to engrave the masterworks from their vast and impressive collection. Volume One of fifty engravings were completed in 1753 and the second in 1757 ( Volume Two). These engravings allow the general public to have the opportunity to admire the great artists of the early 18th century in their own home. Guido Reni ( 1575-1642) was an Italian painter known for his religious compositions which earned him a reputation as one the most famous painters of his day in Europe. He was considered a model for other Baroque painters.
