This fall, the Museum will open the first exhibition in the United States devoted to Barocci's paintings and drawings. Barocci was one of the greatest colorists ever to set brush to canvas, and is considered an important precursor of such 17th-century masters as Peter Paul Rubens.
With more than 130 spellbinding works, Federico Barocci: Renaissance Master presents a trove of exceptionally beautiful paintings and studies, many never before seen in this country. Barocci was one of the most innovative Italian artists of the second half of the sixteenth century and was highly sought by both religious and secular patrons. A major influence on European masters from the 16th to 18th centuries, Barocci's art combines the beauty of the High Renaissance and the dynamism of the Baroque.
