For the first time in Italy an extraordinary monographic exhibit, curated by an exceptional scientific committee, that tells the life and the carreer of Annibale Carracci.
A prestigious scientific committee composed by the most authoritative scholars of Annibale’s work has selected more than one-hundred and sixty works, coming from the most important museums of Italy and of the world, such as the Louvre in Paris, the Dresden Gemäldegalerie, the National Gallery of London, the Prado museum of Madrid, the National Gallery of Edinburgh, the Metropolitan Museum of New York, the National Gallery of Washington, and the Hermitage of San Petersburg. Annibale, is probably the most fascinating and enterprising figure of the three Carracci brothers, he takes the lesson of Renaissance to the highest accomplishment, re-elaborating it in a style of classical beauty and perfection. His revolutionary act is realizing a new balance in painting, reached through the “dal vero” study and the works of the great masters of the past, from Correggio to Veronese, from Raffaello to Michelangelo. His production, extremely various, alternates ordinary life scenes, portraits, mythological subjects, religious scenes and it develops in an extraordinary series of altar pieces, always carefully studied and based on the real.
