Netherlandish Mannerism
In the mid-1500s, Antwerp was the cultural and intellectual capital of the
Netherlands and Mannerism flourished there. Toward the end of the 1500s,
the war for independence from Spain caused the artistic and commercial
center of the Netherlands to shift to Holland, especially the cities of
Amsterdam, Utrecht, and Haarlem. An important school of Mannerism thrived
in Haarlem from about 1580 to 1610, lead by painter and master engraver
Hendrick Goltzius. Goltzius's depictions of human figures were influenced
by the exaggerated musculature, elongated proportions, and twisted poses he
found in works by Michelangelo and Bartholomaeus Spranger (1546-1611).
Spranger was the court painter to the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolph II in
Prague. Goltzius and his followers, Jacob Matham, Jan Muller, Jacques de
Gheyn II, and Jan Saenredam developed a style that combined Netherlandish
and Italian sources into the movement known as International Mannerism.

Dutch printmaker Cornelius Cort is known for his reproductive prints after
Italian artists. Working in collaboration with the Antwerp print publisher
Hieronymus Cock, he earned a reputation as the most significant engraver of
designs by Titian. His technique, emphasizing volume and texture through
the use of tapering and swelling lines, was very influential for artists of
subsequent generations, including Hendrick Goltzius.
