Item description for Ludovico Carracci (Drawing Gallery series) by Catherine Loisel...
This collection of paintings and drawings by the head of the Bolognese school, Ludovico Carracci, showcases his naturalistic approach and the fundamental role of draftsmanship in his creative process. The previous 20 years of art scholarship have seen a revival of interest in Carracci's work as his paintings are no longer confused with work by Caravaggio and by his cousin and pupil Annibale Carracci. Stylized elegance, measured expressionism, fresh invention, and dynamism in composition distinguish Carracci's style as unique among 17th-century artists.
