BAROCCI, Federico Fiori
(b. 1526, Urbino, d. 1612, Urbino)


Oil on canvas, 33 x 25 cm
Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence

The poignant naturalism of the aging painter's rheumy eyes calls attention to his skill, and also to the heightened emotion of the Baroque age, which Barocci fostered in his altarpieces and other religious subjects.
