A distinguished art historian examines a radical change in style that occurred around 1600, a change that turned the whole course of Italian painting—and, through its influence, the painting of other European countries as well—from the Mannerism of the late sixteenth century to the grand achievements of the Baroque. The principal authors of the change were three artists of North Italian origin: Annibale Carracci, Caravaggio, and Ludovico Carracci. S. J. Freedberg defines the particular qualities of each artist’s work and traces the intellectual, visual, and technical evolution of their style.
