Handicrafts are devices or works of art that are made completely by hand or by the use of relatively simple tools. Such goods are usually made in the traditional way of manufacturing goods. Therefore, the knowledge of the art of craft is usually passed down from one generation to another. The items made using these traditional methods of manufacturing are usually produced in smaller quantities and they often represent the culture or religious beliefs of the community that makes them. The goods are also handmade from natural materials that are found in the environment of the particular economy.

The Italian Great Artist – Annibale Carracci Painting Gallery

Posted by Art Of Legend India [dot] Com On 1:14 AM
Most of Annibale's paintings are either religious or mythological works painted in an elevated style, but early in his career he did some everyday life scenes that are remarkable for their lively and humorous imagination. The Butcher's Shop and The Bean-Eater are two of the finest examples. In more traditional subject areas, Annibaleexcelled both in fresco and as an easel painter. His decoration of the Farnese Gallery was one of the key works in the development of 17th-century painting, and individual scenes within the glorious complex stand out as masterpieces in their own right. 

On a more intimate scale, Annibale created some moving religious works, particularly late in his career. `Domine, Quo Vadis?' and The Dead Christ Mourned show all the clear and precise handling of emotional themes, through beautifully controlled gestures and expressions, that made his work an inspiration to classically-minded painters such as Nicolas Poussin.

The Great Artist – Annibale Carracci Painting “The Butcher’s Shop c.1582-3 75”X107” Christ Church, Oxford”
This Painting was discovered only in 1965, but had previously been known through engravings.Venus and Adonis was an extremely popular subject, not only with painters, but also with poets (including, Shakespeare). After being grazed with one of cupid’s arrows, Venus , the goddess of love, is helplessly smitten with the beautiful Adonis. Later he is killed while hunting

The Great Artist – Annibale Carracci Painting “The Triumph of Bacchus and Ariadne 1597-1600 c.18 ft wide Palazzo Famese, Rome”
This is the largest scene in the Farnese Gallery, dominating the centre of the ceiling. Annibale has created a balance between firmness of structure, based on his powerful command of figure drawing, and a lively sense of movement, expressed in the flowing, undulating rhythms of the composition. The sense of spontaneous high spirits that the picture convoys belies the painstaking preparatory work that went into it.
This and the painting opposite from pair based on the story of the love of the Cyclops (one – eyed giant) Polyphemus, the son of Neptune, for the nymph Galatea. In Bellori’s words, he’sits on a promontory in the Sicilian Sea, Soothing his palpitation by stridently singing to the accompaniment of the reeds’.

The Great Artist – Annibale Carracci Painting “The Wrath of Polyphemus 1597-1600 c.7 ft wide Palazzo Farnese, Rome”As he Wandered disconsolately along the sea shore, Polyphemus saw Galtea in the arms of her lover Acis , and in his rage threw an enormous boulder at the youth and killed him. Polyphemus is the most magnificent single figure in the  farnese Gallery, his twisting pose brilliantly converying a sense of enormous physical exertion.
This fairly uncommon subject is based on the tradition that St Peter, Fleeing from the persecution of Christians in Nero’s  Rome, saw a vision of Christ carrying his cross ; in answer to his  question ‘Domine ,Quo vadis? (Lord, where are you going ?), Christ said he was going to rome to be crucified a second time.

The Great Artist – Annibale Carracci Painting “Domine, Quo Vadis?’c.1602-3  301/2”X 22” National Gallery, London”
Annibale’s late works are characterized by their severe classical style, demonstrated in this particular work by  the stylized rhetorical gestures,the carefully orchestrated  composition and the rich, almost strident colouring. This rigorous approach gives the picture an even greater emotional intensity.
