The catalogue documents the extraordinary exhibition dedicated to 16th-century art in Florence, that fortunate season of Italian art that Giorgio Vasari coined as the ‘modern style’. It addresses the final piece of a trilogy that commenced with Bronzino in 2010, Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino in 2014, exhibitions of great value and impact that were visited by thousands.
The volume offers a roadmap to the exhibition that celebrates an exceptional period of culture and creativity, marked by the Counter-Reformation of the Council of Trent and by the figure of Francesco I de’ Medici, the brilliant patron known throughout Europe. On this occasion, over 70 works by artists like Michelangelo, Bronzino, Rosso Fiorentino, Pontormo, Giambologna, Ammannati and others are on display. Works that have never before been compared in such a close and precise manner give the most accurate as possibile comprehensive vision of this period.
In addition to the splendid images of the works of art, the essays of leading experts of this historical artistic period make this volume a valuable and indispensable testimony.
