Reni aurora 700x296



Why is it canonical?

"Quadro riportato" is the classification used to describe this ceiling fresco, indicating a look similar to framed paintings seen in normal perspective and transferred to a ceiling. Despite its similarities to earlier Classicism, it is thought of as Baroque Classicism to distinguish it from earlier, quite similar works.
