The High Renaissance and Florentine Mannerism: Palazzo Pitti and Santa Felicità

Sites Visited

Palazzo Pitti

Church of Santa Felicità

During the age of Leonardo and Michelangelo, many young artists in Florence sought to express their own unique voice of expression. This led many of them to work in an unorthodox style or “manner”. Vasari was the first to collectively coin this movement as “Mannerism”.

This lecture will examine the High Renaissance works of Raphael in the Palatine Gallery of the Palazzo Pitti and compare them to contemporary Mannerist works such as Pontormo’s Capponi Altarpiece in the church of Santa Felicità.
