The St. Louis Art Museum has brought Federico Barocci, a sixteenth century Italian painter, back into the limelight with their exhibition “Federico Barocci: Reinaissance Master.” The 134 works will be featured as part of the commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the artist's death and will be on display until January 20th.

Go to see the St. Louis Art Museum’s exhibition “Federico Barocci: Renaissance Master” to learn about the most important artist you’ve never heard of. Go to see “Barocci” to get some idea of the artistic process, of all the studies and changes that went into the creation of a single large painting. Go to see “Barocci” for the beauty of those paintings themselves.

You have from Sunday until Jan. 20 to see 134 works, sketches, studies and finished paintings, displayed in a manner that demonstrates how Barocci became the chief link between the High Renaissance style and that of the Baroque and how he influenced later painters in his realistic use of figures and illuminating light.
