ABATI, or DELL' ABBATO, NICCOLO (1512-1571), a celebrated fresco-painter of Modena, whose best works are there and at Bologna. He accompanied Primaticcio to France, and assisted in decorating the palace at Fontainebleau (1552-1571). His pictures exhibit a combination of skill in drawing, grace and natural colouring. Some of his easel pieces in oil are in different collections ; one of the finest, in the Dresden Gallery, represents the martyrdom of St Peter and St Paul.
