History of Art 6: Mannersit and Baroque Art 1520-1680
Mannerism (from the Italian for manner or style), 1520-90, is generally seen as abandoning Renaissance classicism and intellectualism for a rather frenetic pursuit of originality and emotional impact – traumatic circumstances (including the Reformation, Sack of Rome, Counter-Reformation and Wars of Religion) playing a part. Mannerism nevertheless produced great art, as did the following Baroque period, 1590-1725. Artists covered include Titian, Holbein, Bruegel, Caravaggio, Velazquez, Rembrandt and Vermeer, and discussions are supported by slides and online recordings.
