Mannerism, a Modern Challenge to the Renaissance

ID : 7369   
« back to classes page

Mannerism, considered by many scholars to be the first modern art, originated as a reaction to the harmonious classicism and idealized naturalism of Renaissance art.  The style was characterized by artificiality, artiness, and a sophisticated indulgence in the bizarre.  Earliest examples include works by Michelangelo and Raphael, in which they broke their own rules. This session will look at those works, along with works by Pontormo, Parmigianino, Rosso, Giulio Romano, and Caravaggio.
