Allegri, Pomponeo

Allegri, Pomponeo an Italian painter, was the son of Correggio, and was born in 1522. He learned the rudiments of the art from his noted father, who died, however, when Pomponeo was only twelve years of age. He continued his studies under Francesco Maria Ronidani, the most talented of Correggio's scholars. Pomponeo executed a fresco painting in the cathedral at Parma, representing Moses Showing the Israelites the Tables of the Law, which is finely colored, with beautiful parts, and heads expressed entirely in the style of Correggio.
