da Corregio, Antonio

Antonio da Corregio 1825 – 1905

Little is known of his early life and training, but his first important work, the Madonna with Saints painted in 1514-1515 for San Francesco in Correggio, reveals familiarity with the styles of Raphael, Michelangelo, and Leonardo da Vinci. These influences continue throughout his career, even though all evidence points to his having been active almost exclusively in Correggio and nearby Parma. His own style is in the grand manner initiated by these men but has a markedly personal flavor, soft and poetical in the treatment of light and color, joyous and exuberant in overall expressive character.
