which artistic value is least apparent in mannerist paintings?
i think it is meaningful distortion
acually i think it might be moral message because there isnt any moral message in the paintings
Oh, yes. I misread the instructions, too. "least apparent"
Well, I think the moral messages are there, but I'm not convinced of their elegance or refined style. I think that was the point -- to use distortion in content and perspective and colors, etc., so they would not be considered refined or elegant.
I don't know how to choose between the two of those answers, though!
