Realism Sketched Out in a 17th-Century Italian Workshop

From 20 June 2013 to 09 September 2013

The Louvre Museum presents the Carracci school

The Louvre is currently presenting 48 artists from 17th-century Bologna who trained with the highly reputed Carracci atelier. This atelier played an essential role in the development of the artistic scene of the time, and expressed a specific esthetic vision that encouraged more realism in art.

The disciples of the Carracci atelier are considered by many to be the precursors of the realistic art movement in Bologna. The members of this esteemed group were all brothers and cousins of Carracci, leading to a familial atmosphere and a tightly-knit camaraderie.

Along with the exhibition, the Louvre is also releasing an art catalog of roughly 900 drawings from the most celebrated artists trained in Bologna. Dedicated exclusively to sketches, both the catalog and the exhibition offer an interesting survey of this critical period for realism in art.

The exhibition, entitled 'The Seicento in Bologna, Drawings from the Musée du Louvre,' reveals around 100 pieces that are representative of the graphic works and developments of the Carracci group. These pieces have been gathered by French art collectors throughout the centuries in order to create the most beautiful Carracci collection in existence.
