DAC Collection Artist Information
Italian painter and draftsman, active in Bologna
Brief biography, in most instances from the Union List of Artist Names® Online:
Lodovico's style is charaterized by being less classical than that of his younger cousins, Agostino and Annibale, his figures have a sense of other-worldliness, and he is more influenced by Mannerist art than his cousins. Like his cousins, he espoused the direct study of nature, especially through figure drawing; he was influenced by the paintings of Correggio and the Venetians.
