Who was Alessandro Araldi?

Alessandro Araldi was an Italian painter of the Renaissance, active mainly in Parma.

Little is known of his biography. He apparently assisted with contemporary Cristoforo Caselli. His work shows the influences of early Venetian Renaissance painters such as Giovanni Bellini and Vivarini, but also Lorenzo Costa from Ferrara. He painted frescoes in the Benedictine monastery of San Paolo. He also painted two scenes with the story of St. Catherine, the Dispute before the emperor Maximilian and St. Catherine and St. Jerome, including an odd Annunciation, for the abbess Giovanna da Piacenza. Antonio Allegri would complete his own masterpiece frescoes for the abbess in a strikingly different, and for the age, more modern style.
