I wanted to take a moment to tell you how much I appreciate your exceptional customer service. I probably place 10-50 Internet orders per month. However, I have never interfaced with another company that can compare to how responsive, polite, courteous and helpful as I have found you to be. In fact, it is usually just the opposite. You are setting a new standard for shopping online, which could change the way all Internet businesses operate.

Styles & Periods
Mannerism

Mannerism developed in Florence in the later half of the 16th century, in part as a development of the work of Raphael, Michelangelo and Leonardo. However, this period between the High Renaissance and the Baroque was in fact a departure from the High Renaissance in that the artists embodied a purely aesthetic ideal, and strove for refined expression that created newly abstract images. Content and harmony, cornerstones of the High Renaissance, were forfeited for grace, display of technique and construed subject. Jacopo da Pontormo’s work displays the strange, dissonant color palettes and elongated forms of Mannerist works. His paintings are not built on rational interpretations, but are rather seemingly impulsive, individual responses of his own invention. Agnolo Bronzino painted in the later part of Mannerism, and as a result took Mannerism even further. His cool, technically impressive style is not as rooted in personal sensibilities as Pontormo’s is, but shows an intense pursuit of formal beauty. Above all, sensuality ruled in the obscure art of the Mannerists.

Latest Product Reviews

This is by far the best ink I have used for my comics! Consistency is perfect. Pigment has the tendency to settle at the bottom of the bottle but I just stir it with a brush and it dissolves quickly. I buy this product in batches,because I am terrified that it will be discontinued. Joe Kubert's school recommended this ink.

I have been using Fluid paper for a few years now and find that it's a great value for the price. The quality is suitable for beginner to intermediate level painters. Very easy to work with, accepts watercolor paints, pencils, aqua crayons and markers well.

This is awesome stuff! I've used it often, especially for Graduation gifts on wooden plaques, with the grads, picture, name cards, invitations, awards etc. Makes a super yet inexpensive gift. Getting this from Misterart.com is convenient, less expensive than driving 40 miles to get it at a craft store! Thank you, Misterart.com!
