Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"A major revaluation...He is deeply learned not only in the visual arts but also in music and (at any rate Italian) literature. He rests his argument on many fascinating, well-chosen quotations. He is bold as well as deft at presenting a case. As a result, Mannerism emerges from this book as clear, shining and new." Michael Kitson in the New Statesman

Review:

"It is to John Shearman's credit that he has cut through the detritus of psychological guesswork, shown that the word mannerism has a precise meaning in its own time...Manierismo was the extreme consciousness of elegant style for its own sake, a passion which unites the cold narcissistic nudes of Bronzino, the elaborate chiselling of Benevenuto Cellini's saltcellar, and the water-games in a duke's garden. Shearman's essay ranges across sixteenth-century music, literature and architecture as well as art: it is a model of breadth and concision." Observer
