Annibale Carracci

Italian painter

Brief biography, in most instances from the Union List of Artist Names® Online:
Annibale is considered one of the greatest Italian painters of his age. His style is marked by naturalism combined 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.
