Antoine Caron (1521-1599)

Sierra Club


French renaissance painter. Cano worked at Fontainebleau under Primaticcio in the 1540s and later became court painter to Catherine de Medicis, wife of Henry II of France. His few surviving works include historical and allegorical subjects as in Massacres under the Triumvirate (1566) in the Louvre, his only signed and dated painting. His style is characterized by extremely elongated, precious-looking figures set in open spaces that seem too large for them. He had a penchant for gaudy colors and bizarre architectural forms.
