Exhibitions
Artists around Parma: Between Melancholy and Exuberance  (Correggio, Parmigianino, Bertoia, Orsi)
The North-Italian city of Parma is home to one of the oldest universities in the world and is a renowned culinary centre. Its artistic school, however, remained provincial until it entered the European stage in the sixteenth century with two major artists: Correggio (1489-1534) and Parmigianino (1503-1540). They defined the ‘Parma School’ with its airy and sensuous style that also has a melancholic and foreboding quality. This dramatic duality became the precursor for the Baroque – a style that swept through Europe in the seventeenth century.

The exhibition will show 35 works from Christ Church’s own collection by artists from this school, including works by Correggio, Parmigianino, Anselmi, Bertoia and Orsi.
