Summary
  • Zu Beginn des 16. Jahrhunderts entwickelten Künstler der auf die Hochrenaissance folgenden Generation wie Andrea del Sarto, Pontormo, Rosso Fiorentino, Agnolo Bronzino und Giorgio Vasari im Wettstreit mit Michelangelo, Leonardo und Raffael einen neuen Stil, die bella maniera. Der Manierismus, wie dieser Stil heute genannt wird, hat viele Facetten: elegant, kultiviert, raffiniert, artifiziell, aber auch kapriziös und extravagant, bisweilen bizarr. Das Buch behandelt die Zeit von der Rückkehr der Medici an die Macht 1512 und der ersten Generation der Manieristen bis zur Definition des Begriffs maniera in Vasaris Künstlerviten 1568 und präsentiert in qualitativ hochwertigen Abbildungen über 120 Gemälde, Zeichnungen und Skulpturen aus den weltweit bedeutendsten Sammlungen. Ein besonderer Schwerpunkt liegt dabei auf dem Werk der beiden Hauptvertreter des Florentiner Manierismus, Pontormo und Bronzino. Der Katalog mit Beiträgen von führenden Experten behandelt die künstlerische Entwicklung in enger Verbindung mit der Geschichte der Stadt Florenz und macht den Leser mit einem der faszinierendsten Kapitel der italienischen Kunstgeschichte vertraut, das ausserhalb von Florenz sonst nirgends in dieser Fülle und Dichte zu erleben ist
  • Brimming with numerous illustrations and essays, this lavish book brings together the best in Mannerist art from the city of Florence, where the movement was born. Emerging in the early 16th century on the heels of the Renaissance, the mannerist style arose out of the art worlds 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 Vasaris Lives of the Artists in 1568, more than 120 paintings, drawings, and sculptures from the worlds 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. The developments in art during the decades in question are closely related to the history of the city of Florence. Refined elegance and creative extravagance render the painters of the Maniera a particular phenomenon in the art of Italy. This beautifully produced and authoritative book presents the achievements and practitioners of one of the most intriguing and influential periods in the history of European art
