Artist Cantarini, Simone
Title The Rest on the Flight into Egypt
Object Name Print
Description Simone Cantarini's "Rest on the Flight into Egypt" clearly reflects both his debt and his independence from Guido Reni. The print is one of several Flights into Egypt developed painstakingly by Cantarini in very finished drawings. He rarely re-used an idea, but often varied compositions by giving each a different theme. The theme of this version and of its model derived from their ultimate precedent Correggio's "Madonna della Scodella," which showed the Madonna and Child being given dates from a palm by St. Joseph.
