On the Trail of Correggio

We spent the day in Parma. The morning was spent at several churches that have ceilings painted by the artist Correggio. He was able to create an interesting perspective that made it appear that you are looking at a very three dimensional scene.

This one is John the Baptist ascending.

Here the use of perspective is even more extreme.

The evening was spent at a concert of Verdi pieces by students at a local conservatory.
