Giovanni Francesco Barbieri, best known as Il Guercino, set up his studio in Cento and soon started working with some assistants, like Bartolomeo Gennari, his cousin Lorenzo, his brother Ercole and his nephews Benedetto and Cesare.

When Guido Reni died (in 1642) he moved to Bologna, a city that no longer had a leading master.

Paolo Antonio, his younger brother and highly proficient painter of still lifes, wrote a ledger, the “Libro dei conti”, which allows us to follow the chronology of patrons and orders, journeys and windfall gain of the studio.

This volume covers all this information. Later on, after Il Guercino died (in 1666), Benedetto Gennari started working in France and in England thus making Guercino’s style even more international.
