RCIN 902082

Ludovico Carracci and his cousins, Agostino and Annibale, established an academy in Bologna that insisted on drawing from the life as the foundation of artistic practice. This is a study for the Sala d’Eneide in Palazzo Fava in Bologna, painted jointly by the Carracci, and depicts a companion of Aeneas crushing a harpy. The use of sticky oiled charcoal led Ludovico to simplify the form of the powerfully built figure. No. 111
