Further into the Renaissance and Mannerism

August was full of disruptions, rains, floods, and even illnesses. But hopefully, we leave all that now. As August ends, we also end our lessons in Renaissance. This time, we will explore the High Renaissance into Mannerism. The influence of the state and private individuals heighten, affecting the style and mood of the times.

High Renaissance displays an excellence and height of technique, but with obvious cool and restraint. Mannerism took on the techniques of Renaissance, but exaggerated and contorted it. The social, religious and political upheavals are just beginning here. The twists and turns of the bodies reflects the twists and turns of artistic developments.

Here are the links to the lectures:

High Renaissance

Mannerism

The School of Athens by Raphael

Bacchus and Ariadne, Titian

An Allegory with Venus and Cupid, Agnolo Bronzino

The Rape of the Sabines, Giambologna

The Madonna of the Long Neck, Girolamo Francesco

The Burial of Count Orgaz, from a Legend of 1323, El Greco

Water, Giuseppe Arcimboldo

And look, indeed, it is. Courage and begin the work!

Malunggay pesto with danggit (dried fish). Trying some twists with local ingredients. #local #pasta #homecook I scraped the last of the Ossuloc green tea milk spread. One of my best haul from Korea. Good thing there is a Jipan substitute, less milky and more matcha. But I will still look for that 오설록 version. So good! #matcha #spread #ossuloc #jipan #korea #manila Feels like an aperitivo night. Good food, good drinks, and good company. Cheers! #gamerchef #moment Blurry photo of malunggay (moringa) pesto pasta topped with leftover five spice fried chicken. Made the pesto from scratch, was able to fill a small jar with it. Shelf life will probably not be long, as there are no preservatives, just malunggay, garlic, and olive oil. Good flavor, just need to adjust some things next time. Cooking experiment is fun. This is also much healthier and  cheaper than the commercially available pesto sauce. #dinner #homecook Pastries, taho, and cinnamon & strawberry tea. Love breakfasts. #breakfast Pumpkin cream pasta experiment. Need more pumpkin. Also need some nutmeg, just discovered that I am out of it. Still so yummy. Cumin works wonders. As well as a bit of cayenne pepper. #pasta #cooking #homecook
