The Slovenia Times

The Lyrical - The Bizarre - The Ambiguous


This exhibition of European Mannerist printmaking brings together a selection of supreme prints from the late 16th to the early 17th century. Mannerism, an unusual period of art between the Late Renaissance and High Baroque, changed order and harmony for distortion of perspective and anatomy. The artists of the time rejected the exterior world of visually perceivable forms and drew inspiration from decadent views of beauty. The Print Section of the National Museum of Slovenia holds an extensive collection of prints from some of the leading centres of Mannerist art, including Rome, Venice, Antwerp, Haarlem, Prague and Munich, among others.
