Giovanni Francesco Barbieri (1591-1666), nicknamed Guercino, is regarded as one of the most significant Italian artists of the Baroque period. A prolific and fluent draughtsman who was known as 'the Rembrandt of the South', he was hailed for his inventive approach to subject matter, his deftness of touch and ability to capture drama and movement. The exhibition reflects the artist's extraordinary technical and stylistic versatility, and is the second joint exhibition to be organised as part of the Courtauld Institute of Art's ongoing collaboration with the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles.
