Potormo, acopo Carucci, as an Italian Mannerist painter and portraitist from the Florentine School who was active in the 15th and 16th centuries. Art historians say his efforts represented a profound stylistic shift from the tranqulity that regularity that characterized the art of the Florentine Renaissance. He is famous for his use of twining poses, coupled with ambiguous perspective; his figures often seem to float in an uncertain environment, unhampered by the forces of gravity.  The exhibit centers on a single painting, on loan from the Getty Museum, “Portrait of a Halberdier,” among the world’s most valuable paintings and one whose roots the exhibit works to explain. Hours: Tue-Sunday 8:15am-6:50pm (box offices closes at 6); Closed Monday.
