Girl with a Rose. Guido Reni (Italian, 1575-1642). Oil on canvas. Museo del Prado, Madrid.
Reni was a quintessentially classical academic but he was also one of the most elegant painters in the history of art. He was constantly seeking an absolute, rarefied perfection which he measured against classical Antiquity and Raphael. Because of this, over the years the Bolognese painter has been in and out of fashion, depending on the tastes of the times.
