One of the most influential artists of the 20th century has led artists such as Yves Klein and Piero Manzoni to regard him as the father of contemporary art. John McCracken bornBerkeley, California, USA is characteristically Minimalist in that his "objects" aren't adequately categorized as "painting" or "sculpture. The series La Fine di Dio is comprised of thirty-eight ovoid canvases. The Piero Manzoni Foundation, which manages the artist's estate, has in the late s become embroiled in several litigations and arguments over the authenticity of works, culminating in the destruction of 32 pieces deemed forgeries by an Italian civil court. Later, he donated a museum for modern art to the Danish town of Silkeborgnear where he grew up.

Rosso Fiorentino and the School of Fontainebleau[ edit ] Rosso Fiorentinowho had been a fellow pupil of Pontormo in the studio of Andrea del Sartoin brought Florentine Mannerism to Fontainebleauwhere he became one of the founders of French 16th-century Mannerism, popularly known as the School of Fontainebleau. Though the painting gives some indication of an interior space through the use of perspectivethe edges of the composition are mostly shrouded in shadow which provides drama for the central scene of the Last Supper. With his Pietre stones series, begun inFontana fused the sculptural with painting by encrusting the surfaces of his canvases with heavy impasto and colored glass. While at college he joined the small Silkeborg branch of the Communist Party of Denmark and came under the direct influence of the syndicalist Christian Christensen, with whom he became close friends and who, Jorn was later to write, was to become a second father to him.

He was also cited as a key influence on the Italian artistic movement Arte Povera of the late s and s, where Italian artists embraced the use of 'poor' materials Manzoni pioneered. Painted against a black background is a portrait of Rudolf IIwhose body is composed of various vegetables, flowers, and fruits. Currently he is the art director of the Toscana Fotofestival.

Jorn never believed in a conception of the Situationist ideas as exclusively artistic and separated from political involvement.

From on he started the so-called Spatial Concept or slash series, consisting in holes or slashes on the surface of monochrome paintings, drawing a sign of what he named "an art for the Space Age".

An additional element of Mannerist style is the atmospheric effects in which El Greco creates a hazy sky and blurring of landscape in the background. He titled these works Concetto spaziale and he used this name for almost all of his later works.
