There have been several painters named Carracci, of which the most famous was Annibale Carracci (1560-1609); they were all Italian Baroque artists from Bologna. The Carraccis pioneered a Bolognese school of painting, which combined the colour of Venetian artists such as Titian with a Florentine emphasis on the line and draftsmanship. Annibale, his brother Agostino and his cousin Lodovico worked together on a number of frescoes including The Founding of Rome; however, once Annibale made a name for himself he often worked alone, travelling throughout Italy to complete commissions in palaces and churches.
