Agostino Carracci

Agostino Carracci (or Caracci) (*August 16, 1557, in Bologna, †March 22, 1602, in Parma) was an Italian painter and graphical artist. He posited the ideal in nature, and was the founder of the competing school to the more gritty (for lack of a better term) view of nature as expressed by Caravaggio.
