Federico Barocci (1535-1612)

Sierra Club


Italian Renaissance artist. Despite the fact that he worked away from the main centers of art, his work was much sought after, his patrons included the emperor Rudolf II. Barocci is generally considered the greatest and most individual painter of his time in central Italy; certain features of his work are thoroughly in the Mannerist tradition but in his directness and freshness he looked forward to the Baroque. Bellori, the biographer of the Baroque age, considered him the finest Italian painter of his period. [Adapted from WebMuseum]
