Caracci Annibale

Caracci, Annibale, brother of the preceding, was born in 1560 in Bologna. St. Roch distributing Alms was the first picture to confer fame, and he was in consequence employed to paint the Farnese gallery at Rome. The series of frescoes he here painted is considered his greatest work. Among his easel-pictures the chief is the Three Marys wailing over Christ, now possessed by the Earl of Carlisle. He died in 1609 at Rome, being buried near to Raphael's tomb in the Pantheon.
