       Antonio Allegri da Correggio was born in Correggio, a small Lombard town near Reggio Emilia. His date of birth is uncertain (around 1494). His father was a merchant. Otherwise, little is known about Correggio’s life or training. In the years 1503-1505 he apprenticed to Francesco Bianchi Ferrara of Modena. Here he probably knew the classicism of authors like Lorenzo Costa and Francesco Francia which can be found in his first works. After a trip to Mantua in 1506, he returned to Correggio, where he stayed until 1510. To this period is assigned the Adoration of the Child with St. Elizabeth and John, which shows clear influences from Costa and Mantegna. In 1514 he probably finished three tondos for the entrance of the church of Sant’Andrea in Mantua, and then returned to Correggio: here, as an independent and increasingly renowned artist, he signed a contract for the Madonna altarpiece of the local monastery of St. Francis (now in the Dresden Gemäldegalerie).

 El Greco

       El Greco (Spanish for “the Greek”) is the name by which Domenikos Theotokopoulos (1541 – April 7, 1614), a Cretan-born painter and sculptor, is best known. He was a master painter in Crete; he journeyed to Rome where he studied under Titian. In 1577 he emigrated to Toledo, Spain, where he produced his mature works. Many of El Greco’s works are on display at the Museo del Prado. El Greco was born on the island of Crete and first trained as an icon painter. At the age of 26, wishing to widen his artistic horizons, he traveled to Venice and Rome, before settling in Toledo, at the time the ecclesiastical capital of Spain. There, he led a successful career as a painter of altarpieces and portraits.

Top Ten Paintings by Giulio Romano

Giulio Romano1Giulio Romano2

       Giulio Romano (1499 – 1 November 1546) was an Italian painter and architect. A pupil of Raphael, his stylistic deviations from High Renaissance classicism helped define the 16th century style known as Mannerism. Giulio’s drawings have long been treasured by collectors; contemporary prints of them engraved by Marcantonio Raimondi were a significant contribution to the spread of 16th century Italian style throughout Europe.

  1. The Battle of the Milvian Bridge (1520-1524)

    The Battle of the Milvian Bridge, or The Battle at Pons Milvius, is a fresco in one of the rooms that are now known as the Stanze di Raffaello, in the Apostolic Palace in the Vatican. The Battle of Milvian Bridge, located in the Sala di Costantino (“Hall of Constantine”), is by Giulio Romano and other assistants of the Italian Renaissance artist Raphael, who died in 1520. It was most likely painted to Raphael’s design between 1520 and 1524. After the master’s death, Giulio Romano worked together with other members of Raphael’s workshop to finish the commission to decorate with frescoes the rooms that are now known as the Stanze di Raffaello, in the Apostolic Palace in the Vatican. The Battle of the Milvian Bridge shows the battle that took place on October 28, 312 between the Roman Emperors Constantine I and Maxentius. Constantine won the battle and attributed his victory to the God of Christianity.
