Abstract :
Shows that a shift took place in the patronage of the Oratorian Order around 1609 when the engraver Luca Ciamberlano assumed responsibility for a series of engravings representing scenes from the life of Philip Neri, with Guido Reni becoming the principal artist responsible for the designs. Ciamberlano and Reni replaced Cristoforo Roncalli (previously the favored artist of the Roman Oratory) and his pupil Bartolomeo Cavarozzi. This was indicative of a deliberate changing of the guard from the old Oratorian style of depiction - a kind of subdued Mannerism - to Guido Reni's modern style of delicate naturalism. The patron responsible for employing Roncalli had been Cardinal Cesare Baronio and it was following his death in 1607 that the new Commendatore of the Oratorians, Scipione Borghese, brought in Guido Reni. Transcribed in an appendix is a list of 40 payments to Ciamberlano and Reni for the Philip Neri engravings, 1609-1614. ;
