Why is it canonical?

Whereas during the High Renaissance painters often emphasized proportion and harmony, the mannerist painters of the late Renaissance began to extend the tremendous achievements in craft and competency of the early generation into new realms. Fiorentino's work demonstrates how art began to evolve with an intellectual sophistication, into greater variety and more challenging forms and subject matter.
