The Renaissance Reformed
Lecture no. 36 from the course: Great Artists of the Italian Renaissance
Taught by Professor William Kloss | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses
The Renaissance was succeeded by Mannerism, a style well illustrated by Parmigianino's distorted Madonna of the Long Neck. Some artists resisted the trend, notably Titian. Professor Kloss closes with a final look at three vastly different interpretations of The Last Supper: Castagno's version of 1447, Leonardo's of about 1498, and Tintoretto's startling vision of about 1594.
