The Madonna with the Long Neck

circa 1535

Why is it canonical?

Mannerist painting was hardly limited to just Florence and Rome. In the flourishing city of Parma, the renowned painter Parmigianino painted this work, elongating the features of the Madonna to challenge the ideal representation so common in previous works by others.
