Mannerism

Mannerism was a form of Renaissance art which emphasized a highly intellectual, unstable, tense approach over balance and clarity.  The art was highly stylized, theatrical, and sometimes unrealistic yet still strong in technique.  Mannerism was popular from 1520 until 1580, when it was replaced by the Baroque movement.
