Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Correggio was born Antonio Allegri, but he is known as Correggio from the name of the small town in northern Italy where he was born in 1494.  Most of his work was done in the nearby town of Parma where about 1524 he was commissioned to decorate a wall of the Church of the Annunciation.  The fresco he painted is now a ruin.  The use of light was Correggio's chief contribution to art, admired in his time and of lasting influence.   He has remained astonishingly popular through the centuries.

In the forty years he lived, Correggio painted only forty well authenticated works.  He was incredibly accomplished for a man who lived far from Florence and Rome.  His stature as the second-greatest Italian painter (after Raphael and before Titian) was secure from the late sixteenth century through the middle of the nineteenth century.   Unlike Raphael and Titian he left relatively few easel paintings and altarpieces.  Correggio had no immediate successors, nor did he have any lasting influence on the art of his century, but toward 1600 his work began to be widely appreciated as the equal of Raphael and Michelangelo.  He died in 1534.
