ABBATE Niccolo del
Painter of the Bolognese school who, along with others, introduced the post-Renaissance Italian style of painting known as Mannerism to France and helped to inspire the French classical school of landscape painting. He began his career in Modena as a student of the sculptor Antonio Begarelli. His "Martyrdom of St. Peter and St. Paul" in the church of S. Pietro, Modena (1547), probably established his reputation. During his stay in Bologna (1548-52), his style matured, influenced by his contemporaries Correggio and Parmigianino.
