Schjeldahl on Bronzino

Peter Schjeldahl (my favorite, and I think one of the smartest and most accessible art critics in the mix) writes about drawing, Bronzino and Mannerism (and echos of Mannerism today) as manifest in the new exhibition of such at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A short spoken analysis of a few key drawings can be heard here; the article appears in the February 1 New Yorker.

The Drawings of Bronzino will be on exhibition at the Met until April 18, 2010. See images from the show and hear interviews with curator Carmen Bambach here.
