Loves of the Gods
Medium: ceiling fresco
The Baroque movement in Italy was characterized by dynamism, theatricality and elaborate ornamentation. This is well demonstrated throughout the architectural pieces of this time. High-valuted and rounded dome-like ceilings were often painted with fresco. Also common during this movement, was religious representation in subject matter as the Church highly influenced artist's and the art they produced (Kleiner, 2014).
In this piece, Carracci uses fresco on the curved vault ceilings of the Palazzo Farnese. Produced in the early Baroque movement, this piece shares the afore-mentioned qualities of Baroque while still retaining some Renaissance characteristics. Carracci combines classical antiquity with elaborate ornamentation in this piece. The various scenes depict both earthly and divine love throughout classical mythology. He create the piece as a way to celebrate the wedding of the cardinal's brother (Kleiner, 2014).
