Butcher's Shop (Annibale Carracci)

The Butcher's Shop is a painting by the Italian Baroque painter Annibale Carracci. Dating from the 1580 (438 years ago) (probably 1583-1585), it is housed in the Christ Church picture (wallpaper) Gallery, Oxford.

The painting is connected to the contemporary Beaneater (Galleria Colonna), for it shares the same popularesque style. Carracci was influenced in the depiction of everyday life subjects by Vincenzo Campi and Bartolomeo Passarotti, whom in fact the Butcher's Shop was originally attributed to. Manifest is Carracci's capability to adapt his style, making it "lower" when concerning "lower", quasi-satyrical subjects like the Mangiafagioli and the Butcher's Shop, while in his more academic works (such as the grossly contemporary Assumption of the Virgin) he was able to use a more classicist composure with the same easiness.

The works offers a series of details which show Carracci's appeal for everyday life.
