SAINT LOUIS, MO.- This fall the Saint Louis Art Museum presents Federico Barocci (c. 1526, Urbino Le Marche – 1612, Urbino): Renaissance Master. Opening October 21, 2012, this international exhibition showcases a trove of exceptionally beautiful paintings and studies, the majority of which have never before been seen in this country, gathered from more than 35 institutions worldwide. Federico Barocci was one of the most innovative Italian artists of the second half of the 16th century and was highly sought after by both religious and secular patrons. A major influence on European masters such as Peter Paul Rubens, Barocci's art combines the beauty of the High Renaissance and the dynamism of the Baroque. In addition to his refined paintings, Barocci completed thousands of preparatory studies (over 1,500 survive), including pastel drawings and oil sketches— a technique he pioneered. Curated in St. Louis by Judith W. Mann, curator of European art to 1800, and Babette Bohn, professor of art history at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Federico Barocci: Renaissance Master offers visitors a unique opportunity to study and understand a master's artistic process. The exhibition features a range of Barocci’s best works from enchanting pastel and chalk studies to truly exceptional and breathtaking paintings. An international symposium will be held January 10–12, 2013, featuring exhibition curators Judith W. Mann, Babette Bohn, and Carol Plazzotta of the National Gallery, London, as well as an international panel of scholars.
