Art after the High Renaissance

The High Renaissance ended in 1527 with the Sack of Rome by the mutinous troops of the Holy Roman Emperor. After the Renaissance ended, art entered the era of Mannerism (c. 1520-1600). The Mannerists did not try to top the illustrious artists of the High Renaissance. The Mannerists tended to focus on succeeding in what they were good at. The Mannerists didn’t always depict their figures in terms of reality, and usually emphasized the emotions of the figures involved.

After Mannerism, art transitioned into the Baroque period. The Baroque period of art displayed a lot of energy and love of drama. There was also a lot more attention to realistic detail as opposed to the mannerists. The Baroque period had much more emphasis on emotion compared to the Renaissance.
