“Coronation of S. Cecilia and S.Valeriano “. 1600 Guido Reni in Basilica of St. Cecilia in Trastevere – Rome

In early 1600 Guido Reni executed for Cardinal Sfondrati two paintings for the Chapel of the Bath in S. Cecilia in Trastevere: the “Coronation of St. Cecilia and St. Valerian and “the Martyr.”

As part of the overall restoration of the decorations and artifacts of the Chapel at the hands of ISCR the restoration of two paintings has been carried out.

With the restoration oxidized paint was removed that prevented a complete reading of two works. The ISCR carried out scientific studies during the restoration (EDXRF, reflectography IR) in order to highlight the features of the technique.
