Catholic Art Saturday/ St. Michael

Guido Reni (4 November 1575 – 18 August 1642) was an Italian painter of high-Baroque style. This is the image that comes to my mind when praying the St. Michael prayer.

He received an independent commission for an altarpiece of the Crucifixion of St. Peter.
                                                           Adoration of the Shepherds ..we have received several Christmas cards adorned with this image, it's refreshing to know where it came from.

                                                            Isn't this the sweetest??
