ELEGANCE AND EXAGGERATION: the Italian Mannerists with Dr. Efrat El-Hanany, Capilano University 

September 18 and 25, 2017 | 7-9 pm
This two-part lecture series traces the dramatic rise of a new style in the art of sixteenth- century Italy. Emerging in Florence at the end of the High Renaissance, the new 'maniera moderna' of such artists as Pontormo, Parmigianino, Bronzino, Cellini, Giambologna, Bronzino and Vasari featured elegant stylizations of the human body, dynamically unbalanced compositions, and unprecedentedly complex iconography.

Cost: $25 for two lectures or drop-in at $15 each.
Register by phone at 604-925-7270 (course # 34128) or online.
