From the Paper:

"Mannerism is a style in art and architecture of the 16th century. It is characterized by the distortion of elements such as proportion and space. In general, Mannerist artists and architects took the classical or idealized forms developed by Italian Renaissance artists of the early 16th century, but exaggerated or used these forms in unconventional ways in order to heighten tension, power, emotion, or elegance. The first to begin working in the Mannerist style were the Italian artists in Florence and Rome around 1520. Mannerism soon spread throughout Italy, France, Eastern Europe, Germany, and The Netherlands. In Italy, the more emotionally compelling baroque style had replaced Mannerism by 1600, whereas in northern Europe Mannerism continued well into the 17th century."
