Sources for pre-18th century emulation


Tintoretto's St. Mark's Body Brought to Venice


Pontormo's Portrait of a Man


Bronzino's Portrait of a Mother and Son


Pontormo's Annunciation


Bronzino's Venus, Cupid, Folly and Time


Bronzino's Portrait of a Young Man Holding a Book


Bronzino's Portrait of a Young Girl


Pontormo's Visitation


Pontormo's Deposition


Bronzino's Deposition


Parmigianino's Madonna with the Long Neck

Evidently, I am really into mannerism, because of how strange it is. Pontormo clearly based his style off of Michelangelo, and then taught Bronzino, and Bronzino really brought that style to a totally different level. Note the similarities (and differences) between their deposition scenes.
