Description

The myth represented, narrated by Venus, then decided to tempt the female vanity by intentionally letting the golden knobs of the Hesperides garden fall during the race. The moment represented is precisely the moment in which Atalanta, eager to own the precious apples, stopped to collect the second one, thus allowing the young lover to be able to overcome it. For Reni the theme becomes nothing more than a pretext for creating one of his more balanced classicism works. The two figures, placed on a single advanced plane, devoid of spatial continuity with the deep and distant horizon, place themselves in a sphere without space or time, mysterious and inaccessible. Arranged in an intricate game of diagionics that intersect and move away, the bodies define a sort of blocked pose, crystallized in the still atmosphere imbued with a moonlight and almost metaphysical. Made at the beginning of the third decade of the seventeenth century, a short distance from the first version now in the Prado Museum, the canvas passed through some private Milanese and Roman collections before being purchased by the Bourbons in 1802.
