Virgin and Child with Joseph and John the Baptist, (painting)
Schidoni, Bartolomeo 1560-1645
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 2
Born at Modena, 1560. Died, 1645. Of SCHIDONI, Pilkington says, "His genius was noble and elevated, his style exceedingly elegant, his touch light, delicate and admirable. His heads are remarkably graceful, and his pictures exquisitely finished. His paintings are exceedingly scarce, and frequently mistaken for those of CORREGGIO, whose manner no other artist ever emulated with equal success." This valuable painting formerly belonged to the gallery of CARDINAL FESCH, and its originality is confirmed by the highest authority. [P. 3.]
