Annibale Carracci's Venus, Adonis, and Cupid
Andre Ubeda de los Cobos
September 2005
Book Description
Annibale Carracci was the great genius of early Baroque painting in Italy, blighted by melancholia at the end of his life but full of promise and invention in his prime. This book concentrates on one of his most ambitious early works, painted in Bologna, the Venus, Adonis and Cupid in the Prado Museum, Madrid. This is the English edition of a publication by the Prado specially dedicated to this painting, which has recently been cleaned and restored and is being displayed beside works by Veronese and Titian on the same subject with which Annibale was consciously competing.

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.
