Saint Louis Art Museum announces Federico Barocci. Renaissance Master, an exhibition on view, October 21, 2012 through January 20, 2013, presenting a trove of exceptionally beautiful paintings and studies, many never before seen in this country. Barocci was one of the most innovative Italian artists of the second half of the sixteenth century and was highly sought by both religious and secular patrons. A major influence on European masters from the 16th to 18th centuries, Barocci’s art combines the beauty of the High Renaissance and the dynamism of the Baroque.
