Annibale Carracci’s Butcher’s Shop: Re-Thinking Art Theory and Practice in the Naturalistic Reform of Painting

This lecture reconsiders Annibale Carracci’s relationship with nature and antiquity during his early Bolognese years through a re-examination of the Oxford Butcher’s Shop. The lecture argues that the Oxford painting should be regarded as a statement of the artist’s own position in the ongoing debate over issues of art practice and theory; in opposition to the prevailing late Mannerist tradition based on the repetition of the Tusco-Roman models, the Carracci’s Butcher’s Shop should be understood as an attempt to achieve its monumentality through the staging of poses and actions inspired by the classical statuary, while competing with the legendary mimesis of ancient painting by means of a technique that championed colore over disegno.

Gloria De Liberali is a PhD student in Art History.
