Featured Artist at the e.Gallery: Correggio


Portrait

Featured Artist at the e.Gallery this week is a 16th Century artist, Correggio [Italian, 1494-1534] Link: http://fineart.elib.com/fineart.php?dir=Alphabetical/Alegris_Antonio

Correggio (Antonio Allegri) (c. 1489-1534). Italian painter, named after the small town in Emilia where he was born. Little is known of his life, but his paintings suggest under whom he may have formed his style. Echoes of Mantegna‘s manner in many of his early paintings indicate that he may have studied that master’s work in Mantua, and he was influenced in these works also by Lorenzo Costa and Leonardo, adopting Costa’s pearly Ferrarese coloring and, in the St John of the St Francis altarpiece (Gemäldegalerie, Dresden, 1514), his first documented work, Leonardo’s characteristic gesture of the pointing finger. Later he initiated a style of sentimental elegance and conscious allure with soft sfumato and gestures of captivating charm. Correggio may well have visited Rome early in his career, although Vasari maintains that he never went there and the obvious inspiration of the paintings of Raphael and Michelangelo could be accounted for by drawings and prints which were known all over Italy.
