PREFACE

To the general public the works of Correggio are much less familiar than those of other Italian painters. Parma lies outside the route of the ordinary tourist, and the treasures of its gallery and churches are still unsuspected by many.

The selections are about equally divided between the frescoes of Parma and the easel paintings scattered through the various European galleries.
