The most famous Renaissance painters emerging from Parma would be Antonio Allegri, known as Correggio, and Francesco Mazzola, known as Parmigianino. Both artists would influence later Bolognese schools; Corregio's works appear to have made a strong impression on the Carracci. However, unlike the Carracci, neither Correggio nor Parmigianino established large studios, or trained many pupils directly, and thus in a sense there is no continuous school of Parmesan painting.
