Late Renaissance

Late Renaissance

30 Discovered artists
The late renaissance (1520 to 1600) is also called Mannerism. Characteristic of this art direction is the turning away from the harmony and balance of harmony that still dominates the High Renaissance. The artists no longer focus on reality, perfection and accuracy, but are now giving free rein to their experimentation. Increasingly, art and technology are also being discussed and questioned. Themes are the style, the method, the way, the "maniera". Florence is the center of the Mannerist late Renaissance, which is reflected in architecture, fine arts, literature and music.

The best example of a Mannerist building is the Palazzo del Te, designed by Giulio Romano, in Mantua. Romano does not violate all but a few rules of renaissance architecture, insofar as he consciously uses irregular distances and renounces symmetry in the façades. In sculpture, the human body is shown twisted and twisted. The figurine serpentinata (serpentine) is typical of the Late Renaissance and the "robbery of the Sabine women" by Giovanni Bologna. In painting, light and colors are experimented with. In addition, symmetry and proportionality are abandoned here more radically than in other artistic directions. The persons depicted often appear "mannered". Significant Mannerist painters were Parmigianino, Jacopo da Pontormo and his pupil Agnolo Bronzino as well as El Greco.
