    Thank you for this! A curious but useful Wikimedia Commons ‘Gallery’ article, “Paintings of Visitation” ( a page “last edited on 29 July 2021, at 01:48”), quickly brought me to Federico Barocci (also written Barozzi) – Federico Fiori, nicknamed Il Baroccio, and an altarpiece in the Chapel of the Visitation (1583–86) of Santa Maria in Vallicella, also called Chiesa Nuova. (A curious ‘Commons’ article for its combination of ambition and incompleteness – including paucity of links). His English Wikipedia article footnotes John Julius Norwich that Federico “is generally considered the greatest and the most individual painter of his time in central Italy” – which I can well believe, from this, and from the examples included! But how have I managed not to know him, especially given what seems a fine and very familiar-looking painting of the Nativity in the Prado in Madrid? Ars longa, vita brevis – including the ‘art’ of learning ‘art history’: repeated thanks for this step in that direction!
