Born in Bologna, Annibale Carracci (15641609) was one of the most revolutionary artists of the late Renaissance. Even before turning twenty, he rebelled against convention by investing his art with a sense of naturalism uncommon to paintings of the period. His early painting The Butchers Shop, a cherished work in the Kimbell Art Museums collection, marks the beginning of Carraccis artistic journey and remains one of his most powerfully naturalistic works. This fascinating study explores the origins and significance of The Butchers Shop, placing it within the artists own career as well as the broader context of Italian painting. Detailing the uniqueness and vitality of Carraccis style, C. D. Dickerson emphasizes the remarkable plein-air quality of the painting and explains how Carracci may have achieved this utterly novel effect, though in fact executing the work indoors in his studio. He also sets Carraccis work in the tradition of butchers shop paintings in Renaissance Italy, analyzes the painting in relation to the reality of the occupation at the time, and investigates where in Bologna such a butchers shop might have stood.
C. D. Dickerson III is curator of European art at the Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth, TX.
