Catalogue Note

This painting repeats a work by Guido Reni completed in 1620, now in the collection of the Musée du Louvre.  Reni's painting was part of a series of four large canvases depicting the Feats of Hercules that were painted for the Duke of Mantua between 1617-1621.  The series was sold by Duke Vincenzo II to King Charles I of England and acquired by the collector Everard Jabach (1618-1695) at the auctions of the King's collection following his execution in 1649.  From Jabach, the series was eventually acquired for the French Royal Collection.
