The "Divine" Guido : religion, sex, money, and art in the world of Guido Reni by Richard E Spear( Book )
11 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The author considers the enduring charisma of Reni's Crucifixions, weeping Marys, and repentant saints in the light of the Catholic doctrinal meaning of grace in Reni's time, the Church's attitude toward Mary and women, and the gendered implications of visual grace. Chapters on Reni's pricing policies, selling strategies, use of assistants, and attitude toward what constituted an "original," expose the motivating importance of money for Reni, and the concerns, even among seventeenth-century collectors, about how to distinguish original paintings from studio replicas or copies

Exploring the many variables that determined the prices asked or received by painters--including the status of their patrons, the size of works and time spent making them, their subject matter, and their number of figures--the authors offer major insights into the social lives, psychological disposition, and economic circumstances of a wide range of major and minor artists

It presents an opportunity to display the considerable wealth of Caravaggesque material in this country and also to show some unknown and unpublished paintings.
