I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino

Ludovico (or Lodovico) Carracci (April 21, 1555 – November 13, 1619) was an Italian, early-Baroque painter, etcher, and printmaker.

His works are characterized by a strong mood invoked by broad gestures and flickering light that create spiritual emotion and are credited with reinvigorating Italian art, especially fresco art, which was subsumed with formalistic Mannerism.
