Notes

Summary:
Barocci incorporatied the viewer into his circle of foreground figures in the Madonna del Popolo, showing the Virgin Mary presenting the people to Christ. The gestures and poses are elegant and the colors flicker with highlights and shadings. He arranged the figures in bold diagonals, creating a sense of upward motion and spiritual ecstasy. Barocci contrasted the exalted figures of Mary and Jesus with images of humble, everyday people, such as a beggar and a musician. Barocci drew studies for this and other paintings using sticks of dry color called pastels; he was one of the first artists to use this new medium. The composition's emotional draw had a strong impact on Annibale and Lodovico Carracci and many younger painters.
