Description

The artwork readily reveals, through a stylistic and formal examination, the hand of Agostino Carracci. The brother of Annibale, capable of an unmistakably aesthetic and cultural experience that led him in his youth to many cities and various schools, gave a very particular meaning to the 'studious course' that, according to the historian Carlo Cesare Malvasia, the Carracci undertook before 1590. They blended recognizable experiences and comparisons with Venetian, Roman, and their native Paduan and Bolognese culture into their style.
