In 1956, Palazzo Strozzi hosted the exhibition Pontormo and Early Florentine Mannerism, in which Pontormo's work was displayed alongside that of Rosso Fiorentino, Beccafumi and other adepts of the new and unconventional trend in painting. Almost sixty years later, Palazzo Strozzi has decided to hold an exhibition devoted to only two of that movement's leading lights, Pontormo and Rosso Fiorentino.

In exploring the work of the two greatest Florentine exponents of what 20th-century critics christened Mannerism, the exhibition and this accompanying volume aim to track the chronological development of the movement.
