Annibale Carracci

(b Bologna, bapt 3 Nov 1560; d Rome, 15 July 1609).

Painter, draughtsman and printmaker, brother of Agostino Carracci. Since his lifetime, he has been considered one of the greatest Italian painters of his age. His masterpiece, the ceiling (1597–1601) of the Galleria Farnese, Rome, merges a vibrant naturalism with the formal language of classicism in a grand and monumental style. Annibale was also instrumental in evolving the ‘ideal’, classical landscape and is generally credited with the invention of CARICATURE.
