CorreggioBook - 1994
Antonio Allegri was born in Corregio in c.1489, and died at the age of 45. His training and early influences are uncertain, but his early works are reminiscent of the styles of Andrea Mantegna and Lorenzo Costa. Correggio explores the painter's works in great detail, from his early paintings, to his great work in the dome of Parma Cathedral, painted between 1526 and 1530. The contradiction between Correggio's religious works and his profane paintings of scenes from mythology is also examined.
