Object description :

"Virgin And Child. School Of Parma, Italy Around 1600."
Oil on poplar panel (parquet): 100 x 80 cm “Cassetta” frame in molded and blackened wood with motifs in the center and fleur-de-lis in the corners (124 x 107 cm) The Virgin is represented here in a landscape seated at the foot of a tree, the child Jesus on his knees, his head turned to the left, plays with a small bouquet of roses placed on the corner of a stone entablature. Illuminated by overhead light, the Virgin, with her face of great gentleness, gazes tenderly at her child. Our research was directed towards an Italian artist from the region of Parma, indeed by his style, this painting is to be compared to the works of Antonio Allegri, known as il Correggio, in French (the) Correggio. (Correggio, near Parma, around 1489-Correggio, near Parma, 1534) The family lived in relative ease which allowed Antonio to receive an education far above the average of the time. It was in contact with his uncle, the painter Lorenzo Allegri, who died in 1527, that he took a liking to painting. He was probably, around 1500, a pupil of Antonio Bartolotti, a painter from the Correggio region, then of Francesco Bianchi Ferrari, a painter from Modena. Correggio's painting was initially inspired by the style of Mantegna, then, after the painter's trip to Rome (1517-1518), the influence of the great figures of the High Renaissance made itself felt (Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci , Michelangelo). But in only fifteen years, this atypical painter will go further than his inspirations. A painter of Christian mysticism as much as of sensual grace, Correggio had the audacity of precursors. He made Parma, where he settled, one of the main centers of the second Renaissance and exerted a lasting influence. Sold with invoice & certificate
