Summary: Annibale (1560-1609) and Agostino Carricci (1557-1602), together with their cousin, Ludovico (1555-1619), were famous in the 17th and 18th centuries as the saviours of art. Critical opinion held that the three painters had changed the course of art history with their insistence on the study of nature and their embracing of the values seen in the art of Raphael and Corregio. Near fine paperback copy; edges very slightly dust-dulled and nicked. Remains particularly and surprisingly well-preserved overall; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered.
