Provincial but inspired by his visionary compatriot Correggio, he tended from the outset toward eccentric form and idiosyncratic expression. Affected by Raphael during a sojourn in Rome, his style became more self-conscious and rigorous. Increasingly abstracted and impossibly beautiful, Parmigianino’s late works determined the course of Mannerism and remained the measure of high artifice through the eighteenth century. His etchings were the first to essay the technique’s conceptual relation with drawing and potential for original expression. This small panel is the most important surviving link between Parmigianino’s painting and printmaking. It was once regarded as a copy after his most developed and famous etching. The two compositions, however, differ in numerous details, and the elaboration of the panel departs from a loose underdrawing in dark pigment—indicative of an evolving rather than a derivative conception. The quality of the painting is confirmed by the soundness of its figures, the modulation of light, and the incisiveness of touch. Still close to Raphael’s designs, the painting was probably executed in Rome. Later, in Bologna, it would have served as the model for the etching.

Guercino was a leading painter in the Bolognese school of the seventeenth century. He was known for his ability to communicate emotion through human gesture and expression.

He was first trained in Milan with the idiosyncratic Paolo Pagani, but his style depends more on the sensuous and decorative aspects of Sebastiano Ricci. Pellegrini’s drawing is broad and soft, his palette warm and pastel, and his paint handling dense and fluid. Defying gravity, bordering on the caricatural, this painterly virtuosity was a tremendous success across Europe, with the artist called to execute significant fresco cycles and numerous canvases in England, France, and Germany. During a year-long sojourn in Antwerp, Pellegrini carried out three major decorative projects. This painting is an unpublished oil sketch for one of these, a much-admired canvas for the ceiling of the Salle du Petit Collège in the city’s town hall. Appropriate to that setting, it represents the figures of Justice and Prudence crushing two male figures identifiable as Avarice and Deceit. Phosphorescent in color, practically sculpted in paint, this sketch dramatizes the material properties for which Pellegrini was so highly regarded. These properties are conspicuous in the wake of a recent cleaning and relining of the canvas. The Suida-Manning Collection includes two other paintings by Pellegrini: a comparably rich, half-length figure of Bellona from around 1713–1714, and a more summary Venus and Cupid, which may have come from a decorative ensemble.

Based upon the example of Valerio Castello, and informed by the long study of Correggio, this style is characterized by concatenated form, iridescent color, and ecstatic sentiment. The full splendor of this style can be appreciated only in his ceiling decoration of palaces, villas and, with a mystical force, some churches in Genoa. Although Gregorio’s style is little known in this country, it is one of the most beautiful of the Baroque and one of the clearest predictions of 18th-century painting. The small size and oblong format of this canvas suggest an architectural function, probably as an over-door element. The calculated balance, relative stability, and general conception of the composition as a shallow relief temper Gregorio’s usual exuberance. This seems, however, compensated by the subtlety of interpretation. Having fled the destruction of Sodom, Lot dwelt in a cave with two daughters who proceeded to seduce him (Genesis 19:12-35). Here, the three appear a single being of soft limbs and rich stuffs and slow rhythms coursing around and through them. Their transgression is understated, exquisite, insinuating.

On the other, these appropriations are subsumed by the school’s traditional concerns with rich decoration and material splendor, and there is no sign of the influence of long-time resident Leonardo da Vinci. Praised by the early chroniclers of Milanese painting, Bevilacqua was nearly forgotten until his rediscovery as a coherent personality in recent decades.

"Medium" : "Oil", "Support" : "canvas", "Disp_Medium" : "Oil on canvas", "Info_Page_Comm" : "In the panorama of early 17th century painting, the Milanese school occupies a singular place. In the wake of the catastrophic plague of 1576, the legendary episcopate of Saint Charles Borromeo, and the resulting preoccupation with religious reform, the city’s culture was pervaded by profound skepticism and spiritual intensity. Involving Mannerist formulae and eccentric inventions, but also the progressive elements of Caravaggio’s chiaroscuro and then Rubens’s dynamism, the school’s painting tends toward the supernatural: the highly subjective, even the irrational, made real to the senses. Of the school’s three leading painters, Cerano was the most complex, visionary, and affecting. His mature style features, and derives its practically existential meaning from, exaggerated contrast between enveloping darkness and celestial light, general monochrome and localized color, thin handling and fluid impasti, pervasive melancholy and momentary ecstasy. In this late picture, related in theme and principal motif to a monumental canvas of Saint Dominic Defeating the Albigensians at Cremona, these contrasts make the representation of militant faith haunting and universal.

However arbitrary his compositions and complicated his devices, their visual energy and the viewer’s visceral sensation return to inform the ostensible subject. In this sense his work represents both the height of a distinctively Venetian Mannerism and a critical source of the Baroque, Rubens’s work in particular. So vital and economical, this style lent itself to portraiture. At their best, Tintoretto’s portraits combine audacious painterliness and powerful characterization. Often, due to the intervention of assistants, they also appear formulaic and unfelt. This portrait, by Jacopo’s eldest son, is an extraordinary example. The drawing is unusually firm, the surface compact, and the light varied, from the glistening corner of the sitter’s eye to the faint glow about his head. This description of a very specific appearance is matched by the psychology, not just generically present but momentary and penetrating. During the 1580s Agostino and Annibale Carracci traveled frequently to Venice and assimilated the school’s most advanced developments: color and classicizing form from Paolo Veronese, and of course dynamic and light from Jacopo Tintoretto. This painting involves the opposite phenomenon: Domenico Tintoretto’s response to the revolutionary experiments of the Carracci. It joins their work on the threshold of the Baroque.

His first training was with Sebastiano Ricci, but completely determining of his style was his long collaboration with the elder Tiepolo. Although his juvenile works have often been confused with the master’s, Zugno’s mature style is readily distinguished by its more delicate description, soft contour, and sweet color. Not just due to temper, this gentle and elegant manner probably reflects some knowledge of the school of Watteau. This lovely picture renders a young couple playing cards under the supervision of an older couple – her guardians? – and with the service of two pages. In such a context, the game serves as a metaphor for courtship. Formally, the picture depends upon Tiepolo’s style of the late 1740s and 1750s. In composition it may be compared with Tiepolo’s Banquet of Cleopatra in Moscow (1747), while in figural rhythm and lightening palette it recalls his frescoes of Henry III in Paris (1750) and canvases of Rinaldo and Armida in Chicago (1755). At just this time, 1754, Zugno was executing a History of Cleopatra in fresco for the Villa Soderini at Nervesa (practically destroyed in the Second World War), and would have been consulting the master’s recent history paintings closely.

in Genoa during the second half of the 17th century. With the catalyst of Pietro da Cortona’s High Baroque cycles, in a manner so fluent as to seem automatic, Piola generalized the lessons of Rubens and Van Dyck’s dynamic naturalism and translated them into the grand scale decoration of the native Genoese tradition. Few palaces in Genoa and scarcely a church in Liguria lack a work with the undulating rhythms, variegated modelling, and softly modulated light that are his trademarks. Piola’s works may not be sound in structure or deep in characterization, but they do convey a ease, even a joy, that are estimable and historically relevant. Although reduced to a small, horizontal format, this picture depends strictly on Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione’s great altarpiece of 1645 for San Luca in Genoa. The setting with a broken column symbolic of the Synagogue, the delightful incorporation of the bacchanalian shepherd and still-life motifs, and the fluid rhythm leading toward the radiant Child are virtual quotations. Soprani, the 17th-century biographer of the Genoese painters, writes that the young Piola was so taken with Castiglione that he learned to imitate his style. One of these imitations, “a very beautiful small panel of the Nativity,” was so successful that even experts equivocated about its authorship. Except for the material of its support, Soprani could have been referring to the present picture. Principally it is the slacker drawing, difficulty with space, as in the interval between the boys and the Virgin, and impatient execution in the background that identify it as a very early work by Piola. The picture is a landmark of the artist’s development and of Genoese painting on the threshold of its greatest achievments.

His style arose from his first training and lifelong collaboration in the family business of fine porcelain painting. Its larger context is the Genoese taste for Netherlandish painting that goes back to the fifteenth century. After a series of trips to Emilia, Guidobono shifted this already delicate style toward the soft contour, luminous color, and gentleness of Correggio. Later he would reconcile it with the large rhythms and efficient manufacture of Domenico Piola. This "Holy Family" is a beautiful compendium of Guidobono’s early style. Its matrix is surely Genoese, with the figural group suggested by Piola and the pure hues reminiscent of Baciccio. Instead, the grain of light, amplitude of the figures, and tenderness reveal the recent debt to Correggio. Most impressive, however, are the refined drawing and meticulous finish, practically those of a miniature painting. In few other works of Guidobono is the craft more sustained or the reflection of his first activity more apparent. This unorthodox petite manière also anticipates the prettiness of the Rococo and the developing relation of the Genoese school to the French.

The activity of Luca Cambiaso represents the foundation of a native and highly progressive school of painting. First trained locally by his father, Cambiaso then went to Rome, where he assimilated the current style based on Michelangelo’s painting. Returning to Genoa, he cultivated the geometry and ideality that underpin that style. This led to the development of what is perhaps the most abstract and intellectualized style of the entire Italian Renaissance. Its characteristics are an extreme simplification of form, opacity of expression, broadness of execution, and modality according to the subject and function of the painting. Rendering the Jewish queen’s courageous intercession with the Persian king to save her people, this painting is an outstanding example of Cambiaso’s most conventionally beautiful mode. Expressing the powerful conjunction of physical allure and moral force, the subject was a favorite from around this time through the 18th century.

The general composition and its compression of space into a single plane derive from a low-relief sculpture designed by Cerano for the façade of the church of San Paolo Converso in Milan.

The resulting style is highly original in its staging, admirable in its action, and convincing in its feeling. This picture demonstrates Crespi’s rapid development toward a style of absolute coherence and exceptional theatricality. The composition is related to Caravaggio’s painting of the same subject, and the dramatic chiaroscuro generally reflects Crespi’s intensifying naturalism. The design, with bold rhythms and strong drawing, is conditioned by Florentine interpretations of early Baroque style. And both the palette and striking differentiation of paint handling—compare the rendering of Christ’s tremulous flesh with that of Pilate’s splendid sleeve—are freshly informed by Rubens’s example. But by now these elements have been thoroughly synthesized and reconciled with a persistently Milanese subjectivity. This, Crespi’s mature style, is at once rich in narration, declamatory in form, and charged in expression.

"Mary glides into the scene as the sunlight before dusk enriches the palette with a golden vibrancy. With Jesus in her womb, she will spend the next three months with her cousin, Elizabeth, who is six months pregnant. At the sound of Mary’s voice, Elizabeth is filled with the Holy Spirit as the child in her womb leaps for joy. While Mary’s husband Joseph is not present in the scripture, he appears to the right of the Virgin as a narrative device to evidence Zacharias’s muteness. Because Zacharias doubted his wife’s ability to conceive, the angel Gabriel punished his lack of faith by rendering him mute until the birth of his son, John the Baptist. Here, Zacharias gestures his salutations to Joseph, whose furrowed gaze is troubled by his lack of speech. The Visitation is a popular scene from the life of the Virgin, having been depicted by Camillo Procaccini numerous times. A preparatory drawing for the present piece is kept at the Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan.
