MORONE, Francesco
(b. ca. 1471, Verona, d. 1529, Verona)


Italian painter, the son and pupil of Domenico Morone and an associate and friend of Gerolamo dai Libri (c. 1474-1555). He was one of the leading painters in Verona in the early 16th century. Vasari praised his frescoes (1505-07) for the cupola of the sacristy in Santa Maria in Organo, Verona. He also painted the organ shutters in that church.

Cavazzola was said to have been a pupil, but may have more aptly worked with one of his family members.
