Pontormo and Rosso. Diverging Paths of Mannerism
8th March 2014 - 20th July 2014
Palazzo Strozzi hosted the Exhibition of Pontormo and Early Florentine Mannerism in 1956, in which Pontormo's work was displayed alongside that of Rosso Fiorentino, Beccafumi and other adepts of the new and unconventional trend in painting. Almost 60 later Palazzo Strozzi has decided to hold an exhibition devoted to only two of that movement's leading lights, Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino. They were both born in 1494, at the close of a century which had seen the collapse of a political balance that had guaranteed the prosperity and security of Florence and of Italy as a whole, and at the start of a troubled era of religious and political clash that was to lead to a definitive alteration of the political balances among states and to the loss of the harmony and balance in art that had been such a feature of the transition from the 15th to the 16th centuries.
In exploring the work of the two greatest Florentine exponents of what 20th century critics christened "Mannerism", the exhibition aims to track the chronological development of the movement which Giorgio Vasari sets at the start of the "modern manner" and which was rooted, both for Pontormo and for Rosso Fiorentino, in their relationship with Andrea del Sarto.
Mirroring the precepts underlying the Bronzino exhibition, this exhibition opted for a broad and multifaceted overview of the two great painters' masterpieces, according priority to the formal splendour and lofty poetry of Pontormo and of Rosso so that the exhibition appeals in its clarity not only to the specialist but also to a wider audience thanks to themed sections set out in chronological order.PALAZZO STROZZI Grandi Mostre - Piano Nobile
