This week, for Sunday, August 16th, our SIMPLY SNICKERS poetry prompt includes these key words:




This week, we celebrate the birthday of Italian Baroque painter and printmaker Agostino Carraci, who was born on August 16, 1557. Agostino Carraci’s brother was Italian painter Annibale Carracci, and his cousin was Italian painter Lodovico Carraci.

To honor this artist SIMPLY SNICKERS offers samples of this artist’s work to accompany this week’s prompt.
