Peroni, Giuseppe, an Italian painter, born at Parma about 1700. According to the Abate Affo, he first studied under Felice Torelli at Bologna; next with Donati Creti; and afterwards went to Rome, where he became the pupil of Agostino Masucci. According to Lanzi, he designed much in the style of Carlo Maratti, but his coloring partakes largely of the verds and other false coloring of Conca and Giaquinto, who were then very popular at Rome. Such are his pictures of St. Philip, in the church of S. Satiro at Milan, and the Conception, in the possession of the Padri dell' Oratorio at Turin. Lanzi says, also, that his best works are his frescos in the church of S. Antonio Abate at Parma, which rank him among the good painters of his age. There he also painted an altar-piece of the Crucifixion, in competition with Pompeo Battoni. He executed several other works for the churches of his native city; adorned its academy, and wrought much for the collections. He died at Parma in 1776, at an advanced age. Lanzi calls him the Abate Giuseppe Peroni, a title probably conferring some favor upon him.
