Provincial but inspired by his visionary compatriot Correggio, he tended from the outset toward eccentric form and idiosyncratic expression. Affected by Raphael during a sojourn in Rome, his style became more self-conscious and rigorous. Increasingly abstracted and impossibly beautiful, Parmigianino’s late works determined the course of Mannerism and remained the measure of high artifice through the eighteenth century. His etchings were the first to essay the technique’s conceptual relation with drawing and potential for original expression. This small panel is the most important surviving link between Parmigianino’s painting and printmaking. It was once regarded as a copy after his most developed and famous etching. The two compositions, however, differ in numerous details, and the elaboration of the panel departs from a loose underdrawing in dark pigment—indicative of an evolving rather than a derivative conception. The quality of the painting is confirmed by the soundness of its figures, the modulation of light, and the incisiveness of touch. Still close to Raphael’s designs, the painting was probably executed in Rome. Later, in Bologna, it would have served as the model for the etching.

However arbitrary his compositions and complicated his devices, their visual energy and the viewer’s visceral sensation return to inform the ostensible subject. In this sense his work represents both the height of a distinctively Venetian Mannerism and a critical source of the Baroque, Rubens’s work in particular. So vital and economical, this style lent itself to portraiture. At their best, Tintoretto’s portraits combine audacious painterliness and powerful characterization. Often, due to the intervention of assistants, they also appear formulaic and unfelt. This portrait, by Jacopo’s eldest son, is an extraordinary example. The drawing is unusually firm, the surface compact, and the light varied, from the glistening corner of the sitter’s eye to the faint glow about his head. This description of a very specific appearance is matched by the psychology, not just generically present but momentary and penetrating. During the 1580s Agostino and Annibale Carracci traveled frequently to Venice and assimilated the school’s most advanced developments: color and classicizing form from Paolo Veronese, and of course dynamic and light from Jacopo Tintoretto. This painting involves the opposite phenomenon: Domenico Tintoretto’s response to the revolutionary experiments of the Carracci. It joins their work on the threshold of the Baroque.

The activity of Luca Cambiaso represents the foundation of a native and highly progressive school of painting. First trained locally by his father, Cambiaso then went to Rome, where he assimilated the current style based on Michelangelo’s painting. Returning to Genoa, he cultivated the geometry and ideality that underpin that style. This led to the development of what is perhaps the most abstract and intellectualized style of the entire Italian Renaissance. Its characteristics are an extreme simplification of form, opacity of expression, broadness of execution, and modality according to the subject and function of the painting. Rendering the Jewish queen’s courageous intercession with the Persian king to save her people, this painting is an outstanding example of Cambiaso’s most conventionally beautiful mode. Expressing the powerful conjunction of physical allure and moral force, the subject was a favorite from around this time through the 18th century. Typical of Cambiaso’s art, the composition is spare, schematic, and still. True to this mode, and appropriate to the subject, the description is relatively generous, the touch, especially in the ornament, delicate, and the tenor gentle.

Pontius Pilate presents Jesus, bound and crowned with thorns, before a crowd demanding his crucifixion. Here the tumult of the scene is replaced with a quiet, almost meditative atmosphere. The simplicity of narrative closely reflects the religious and artistic environment in which Luca Cambiaso worked. Faced with the rise of Protestantism in the sixteenth century, the Catholic Church carried out a series of reforms, now referred to as the Counter-Reformation. During this period, the Catholic Church encouraged artists to make decorous images with minimal distractions, like this painting, to communicate the Catholic doctrines effectively. Through its simplified composition, Cambiaso’s "Ecce Homo" invites the viewer to focus on the suffering of Jesus.

While Mary’s husband Joseph is not present in the scripture, he appears to the right of the Virgin as a narrative device to evidence Zacharias’s muteness. Because Zacharias doubted his wife’s ability to conceive, the angel Gabriel punished his lack of faith by rendering him mute until the birth of his son, John the Baptist. Here, Zacharias gestures his salutations to Joseph, whose furrowed gaze is troubled by his lack of speech. The Visitation is a popular scene from the life of the Virgin, having been depicted by Camillo Procaccini numerous times.
