Bernardino Campi

Bernadino Campi (1522–1591) was a Renaissance painter from Cremona, who worked in Reggio Emilia.
He is known as one of the teachers of Sofonisba Anguissola and of Giovanni Battista Trotti (il Malosso).
In Cremona, his extended family owned the main artistic studios. Giulio Campi and Antonio Campi, half-brothers, were distant relatives of Bernardino; the latter is generally considered the most talented of the family.
All were active and prominent painters locally. Influences on Bernardino's are likely diverse, including those from local Cremonese such as Camillo Boccaccino, to artists from neighboring regions such as Correggio, Parmigianino and Giulio Romano.
