Negrone or Nigrone, Pietro
Negrone or Nigrone, Pietro called Il Giovane Zingaro ("the young Gypsy"), a painter of the Neapolitan school who devoted himself mostly to sacred art, was born at Calabria about 1505. Dominic says he first studied under Gio. Antonio d'Amato, afterwards under Marco Calabrese; and he commends him as an accomplished and diligent artist. In S. Agnello, at Naples, there is a picture of The Virgin and the Infant in the Clouds, with Saints and a Glory of Angels; also in S. Maria Donna Romata are two pictures by him, representing the Adoration of the Maogi and the Scourging of Christ, painted in 1541. He died, according to Lanzi, about 1565.
