CARRACCI, Annibale
(b. 1560, Bologna, d. 1609, Roma)


Oil on canvas, 156 x 149 cm
Museo Nazionale di Capodimonte, Naples

Carracci executed this painting simultaneously with the frescoes in Galleria Farnese in Rome. It shows Carracci's capability to combine in an original way the style of selected artists from the past, in this case those of Correggio and Michelangelo.
