Aretusi, Cesare

Aretusi, Cesare an Italian painter, was born at Modena, and lived about 1590. He imitated the works of Bagnacavallo, and surpassed all artists then living as a copyist of the works of great masters; for he could assume the style of almost any painter, and pass off many of his copies as genuine. He was so successful in imitating the works of Correggio that he was employed to restore, the painting executed by that artist for the tribune of the Church of San Giovanni at Parma, where it still remains. In the Church of San- Giovanni - del Monte at Bologna is a fine altar-piece by this master, representing the Virgin and Infant, with two female figures embracing each other.
