Biography:
A member of the Carracci family that consisted of a long line of artists, Agnostino was no exception. He was a talented engraver and teacher. He also created drawings of the human body with so much accuracy that engravings produced from them were used as teaching tools two hundred years after their production. In 1582, the Carracci founded the Accademia degli Incamminati (Academy of the Initiated.) It soon became the most popular teaching academy in Bologna. They taught Mannerist ideas and emphasized drawing from life. In 1597, Agnostino moved to Rome to live and work with his brother Annibale on the Farnese Gallery frescoes. After an argument in 1600, Agnostino moved to Parma to work on another commission for the Farnese family and died there in two years later.
