The Mannerism (1520-1620)

The mannerism term is derived from Italian will handle and it indicates an artistic style practised in Europe lasting with little meadows one century between 1520 and 1620. In art the mannerism always appears when a style is on the decline and painting is exactly in this situation at the end of the Rebirth. The mannerism was born in reaction with classicisme. Whereas the Rebirth had discovered the laws of the prospect the mannerists exploit this depth either by exaggerating it or by abolishing it. The characters have rather artificial postures while releasing much sensuality.
