Annibale Carracci, 1560-1609, one of the first Italian Baroque painters to paint a canvas wherein landscape took priority over figures, this is a genre in which he was followed by Domenichino and Claude Lorrain
. Annibale Carracci art also had a less formal side that comes out in his caricatures and in his early genre oil paintings. It is a measure of his achievement that artists as diverse as Bernini, Poussin, and Rubens
praised Annibale Carracci paintings. -- The Copyright of Scripts is Reserved by Toperfect.
