The highlights of Annibale Carracci's career remain popular choices for art prints, be it Butcher's Shop, The Beaneater or perhaps Assumption of the Virgin

Carracci's ouevre was broad, taking in landscapes at a time when they were much less frequent. He also completed numerous portraits, including some self-portraits. His style was a merging of styles from across Italy, taking in the likes of Titian, Tintoretto, Michelangelo and Raphael.

Those looking to purchase reproduction prints of his work are therefore likely to also appreciate the work of those earlier artists, too. A famous alternative to this group of artists would be Caravaggio, whose work is also frequently reproduced by art fans. His style was bolder and more contemporary, impressing some but shocking others.

Exposure is a key aspect to which paintings are chosen as art print reproductions. Carracci's work is spread across different art museums and galleries as well as some private collections. Those in major international galleries will naturally receive a greater number of viewings and from that orders will inevitably arrive.

Famous artists from the past have always seen their reputations sway in popularity and the likelihood is that Carracci's work will again receive greater scrutiny at some point again in the future. Perhaps future exhibitions may place his work alongside his brother and cousin, or use his oeuvre as evidence of the influence of members of the Italian Renaissance.

The styles of the Renaissance and Baroque art movements are always best suited to large frames and a small spacing between the print artwork and the inside of said frame. More contemporary artists will always suit a simpler, minimalist set up. Larger frames can be expensive but will truly lift the look of the print to another level.
