About Maniera: Pontormo, Bronzino and Medici Florence:

Emerging in the early 16th century on the heels of the Renaissance, the mannerist style arose out of the art world’s attempts to further the incredible achievements of Michelangelo, Leonardo and Raphael. Mannerist art comprises many facets: it is elegant, cultivated and sophisticated, but also artificial, extravagant and sometimes even bizarre. Some called the art of Maniera “the stylish style”. Spanning the period from the return of the Medici in 1512 and the first tentative steps of the new generation of artists to the definition of the Maniera in Giorgio Vasari’s Lives of the Artists in 1568, more than 120 paintings, drawings and sculptures from the world’s leading museums are gathered in this book. It features works by Andrea del Sarto, Rosso Fiorentino and Giorgio Vasari, with a special focus on the work of Pontormo and Bronzino, the central figures of Florentine mannerism.
