Closely related to the Carracci family, Badalocchio trained together with Giovanni Lanfranco first under Agostino Carracci in Parma and then in Rome under Annibale Carracci, assisting him in frescoing the Farnese Gallery. "It is noteworthy that Badalocchio seemed to be at his most typical as a follower, working with others on fresco cycles or reproducing the work of others in prints. In etching he was certainly at his best in this mode …” (Richard Wallace).
