DER MANIERISMUS ZWISCHEN GEGENSÄTZLICHEN URTEILEN: DER FALL GRGO GAMULIN
Mannerism between opposed ideas: case of Grga Gamulin
Languages of publication
The article analyses the issues related to the mannerism of Croatian art historian Grgo Gamulin (1910 - 1997) as a prime example for a possible interpretation, which allows a view to the methodological and ideological positions of an art historian in the post-war period in a communist country. His appreciation of mannerism has been fully manifested in the article Mannerism between contradictory views (1960). The mannerism is not rated negative as a style of aesthetic degeneration, but grasped in its historical meaning, whereby the tendencies of expressive and spiritualising mannerism are evaluated positively and those of the so-called epigonic and mimetic mannerism marked negative.
