EVCS: Callum Reid ‘Annibale Carracci’s Holy Family at the National Gallery of Victoria’

Annibale CARRACCI, The Holy Family  (c. 1589), oil on canvas, 69.9 x 61.0 cm, NGV International, Felton Bequest, 1971

Callum Reid ‘Annibale Carracci’s Holy Family at the National Gallery of Victoria’ This paper examines the little- studied Holy Family by Annibale Carracci (1560-1609), which hangs in the National Gallery of Victoria, and discusses its style, iconography and position within the artist’s oeuvre.
