Caracci Ludovico

Caracci, Ludovico, painter, cousin of the two preceding, was born in 1555 at Bologna. While studying under Tintoretto at Venice he acquired the reputation of being a dunce. After a careful study of preceding masters, he became imbued with principles antagonistic to the art then prevailing in Bologna, and to promote these principles established a school under the name Incamminati, or the "Right Road." With him were associated his cousins, Agostino and Annibale, and so successful was the project that every other school of art in Bologna was deserted and closed. He died in 1619. Among the works of Ludovico still preserved at Bologna are Madonna and Child throned. Madonna and Child standing, Transfiguration, etc.
