Correggio by Lucia Fornari Schianchi
Book DescriptionAntonio Allegri (1489-1534), named Correggio after his birthplace, worked in the triangle spanning Emilia and Lombardy, throughout the early sixteenth century where new rules of painting were being developed and expressed, based on light and colour, the voluptuousness and softness of bodies and a new conception of space and nature. Correggio worked mainly in Parma, where he was able to fully express his innovative passion and talent for painting. In the Camera di San Paolo, for a Benedictine abbess, he designed a pergola featuring the entire mythological Olympus in lunettes as lovely as carved marble, offering a complex iconology of emblems and symbols; while on the vaults of Parma's churches he expressed the notion of a fleecy paradise where the representatives of a welcoming, religiosity interact within a sweeping scenography. But he also created altarpieces, boldly erotic profane subjects and rapid sketches, conserved today in leading museums all over the world. Since Vasari there has not been a single historian or critic who has not recognised his importance. The Gallery of the Arts is an affordable, high-quality range with a fresh approach, which reaches beyond the usual selection of Old Masters and Impressionists. Alongside books on celebrated figures like Raphael, you will find titles devoted to lesser-known artists such as the Pollaiuolo Brothers, as well as surveys of entire art-historical periods. Subjects range from mediaeval to contemporary and will soon include non-Western art. This is a flexible series, varying its length to suit its theme: titles on specific artists will have 80 pages (32 colour plates) or 112 pages (48 colour plates), while those looking in detail at particular periods in art will be 160 pages in length (64 colour plates).
