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!

The big ones from the temple was much better, but I only found the small ones in the grocery store. I really like this. Does this really read mini yakwa? 미니 약과? I want to find the big ones! Tastes like chewy honey biscuitsb really good with tea. #food #seoul #korea 2016.09.25 Beautiful ending for today. They say this spot is even better at night. I'll come back soon enough. #seoul #korea 2016.09.25 Accidentally found this beautiful spot in the city. There are issues here of course, but that is for another day. I love how people are out in the festivals and parks all over the city. #seoul #korea 2016.09.25 Colors between summer and autumn. #flowers #seoul #korea 2016.09.25 Spring by Claes Oldenburg. Monumentalization and democratization approaches to art, as commissioned by the government. #art #seoul #korea 2016.09.25 Not only did Kim Yong-Ik managed to maneuver across conflicting philosophies of modern art, he also engaged in art criticism, especially as he matured in his career. #art #seoul #korea
