Description:
In 1603-1604 Annibale had agreed to paint six lunettes with New Testament scenes in a landscape setting for the chapel in the palazzo of Cardinal Pietro Aldobrandini. Before 1605 he had painted one of the lunettes, the Flight into Egypt, and designed the Entombment before he fell ill. The Flight into Egypt is the archetypal statement of what has come to be known as the 'ideal landscape', a rationally constructed landscape in which human figures, buildings, and nature are held in perfect balance.
