Mannerism

 

Fast Facts

Mannerism developed in Rome during confused, troubled times, which witnessed the disintegration of the Catholic Church. Social, political and religious upheaval was set against a backdrop of famine, plague and constant war. Mannerism, a time characterized by crisis, gave rise to several competing anti-Classical tendencies rather than one dominant style or ideal.
