Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino. Diverging Paths of Mannerism
Palazzo Strozzi, March 8th - July 20th, 2014
Diverging Paths of Mannerism, devoted to the work of Pontormo and of Rosso Fiorentino, the two painters who were without question the most original and unconventional adepts of the new way of interpreting art in that season of the Italian Cinquecento which Giorgio Vasari called the 'modern manner'.
A unique and unrepeatable event bringing together for the very first time a selection of masterpieces by the two artists in Italian and foreign collections, many of them specially restored for the occasion.
Organised by: Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi - Curated by: Carlo Falciani and Antonio Natali
