Mannerism

Mannerism

1525 - 1600


Between the HIGH RENAISSANCE & the BAROQUE era, ART, especially Italian art, developed into a style known as MANNERISM. Mannerism was a deliberate revolt by artists against the goals of the Renaissance.

Why was the flawless representation of nature & the human body, the rational & harmonious designs, and the classical balance of the High Renaissance rejected?

MANNERSIM favored emotion over reason, dissonance over harmony, and imagination over reality.

WHY??

Mannerism examples


POLITICAL UNREST IN ITALY especially Italian art, developed into a style known as : At the time of the High Renaissance, Italy was at peace and confident. Then……France invaded Italy & took over parts of it. Rome was sacked by the Germans & the Spaniards. France & Spain waged war over control of Italy and for the next century, much of Italy was ruled by foreign kings.


RELIGIOUS DISUNITY especially Italian art, developed into a style known as : At the beginning of the 16th century Europe was Catholic & the Church was influential, politically powerful, extremely wealthy & CORRUPT.

People were beginning to think the church offered meaningless rituals, “bought” pardons for sins, and consisted of clergy who abused their power, lived lavishly and immorally.

People’s respect for priests, monks and popes weakened. There was a clear distrust and dislike of the clergy.

Criticism of the Roman Catholic Church eventually led to the religious movement called the Protestant Reformation and brought changes in religion and politics across Europe.

Early reformers believed the church should give up earthly possessions (views which were unpopular by church officials). These early reformers were removed from their positions, excommunicated by the pope, arrested and burned at the stake.

Martin Luther publicly criticized the church in his Ninety-Five Theses (which he nailed to church doors to act as public bulletins). He insisted that God’s grace cannot be won by money, and declared the only head of the church was Jesus, not the pope. He insisted that people should be their own interpreters of scripture.

Desire for reform grew. The pope expelled him from the church and he was declared an outlaw. There were “protests” against hi2 writings – Protestant.

These and other ideas spread across Europe. Protestant Reformation spread to England when King Henry VIII declared himself head of the Church of England after the pope refused to annul his marriage to Catherine.
