Mannerism

52 Discovered artists
Mannerism refers to an art-historical form at the time of the Late Renaissance in Italy, which mainly includes architecture, sculpture and painting. But literature and music are also to be mentioned in this context. This art direction is characterized by the fact that all the technical possibilities for the extreme representation are used, which emphasize the personal style of the artist. The term Mannerism is used not only in the art historical sense, but is also used universally. The expression "Maniert" means that something is perceived as pathetic or artificial. In the year 1520, Raphael's death ended the era of the High Renaissance in Italy, and Mannerism developed. Italian works of art created from this time until the coming century turn into this style. It was not until the middle of the sixteenth century that this trend began in Germany, Flanders, France and the Netherlands.

In painting, this artistic style is most pronounced. In contrast to the high renaissance, space and image structure are changed profoundly here. The perspectives, the deformation of the model of nature, the difficult constellations of figures in concave rooms, and asymmetry are characteristic of this style. In the works the figures are often represented with small heads and elongated. The color scheme is restless and contains strong light-dark variations. Jacopo Robusti and Jacopo da Pontormo are the representatives of this direction. The Spaniard El Groco formed his own characteristic expression.
