Vittorio Sgarbi. Tintoretto and Venetian Mannerism: An Interpretation of the Exhibition
Titian, Vasari, Sustris, Demio, Bonifacio Veronese, Bassano, El Greco, Schiavone and Paolo Veronese were the painters who worked alongside Tintoretto in Venice. In 16th century Venice Tintoretto's vision with its multitude of different viewpoints, its contrasting light and shade and its oblique perspective was the synthesis of a Mannerist sensitivity that he interpreted without the slightest feeling of inferiority in relation to the primacy of Michelangelo. A comparison of the artists' work highlights both Tintoretto's originality and his almost "cinematographic" creative force, in Sgarbi's modern and unconventional interpretation.
