Annibale Carracci - The Frescoes from the Herrera Chapel

Published on April 8, 2022

This exhibition reunites a group of exceptionally important wall paintings (last seen together in 1833) which can be considered the great unknown work in Annibale Carracci’s oeuvre; the surviving frescoes from the chapel of Juan Enríquez de Herrera’s family in the church of San Giacomo degli Spagnoli in Rome.

The special installation for their display in the exhibition allows visitors to appreciate the original location of the works at different heights in the chapel and what the decorative scheme as a whole would have looked like.

These paintings are shown in the exhibition alongside related drawings, prints that depict lost fragments, and books of funeral services of Spanish monarchs which include images of the interior of the church’s interior.

The exhibition runs from March 8 - June 12, 2022 at the Prado, 23 C. de Ruiz de Alarcón, Madrid 28014 Spain.
