During the 1540s, the compositional principles of Mannerism can be found in Titians work. The painting "Ecce Homo (dated 1543) comes from this brief period. Influenced by Michelangelo and his circle in Florence and Rome, Titian assumes their predilection for asymmetric composition. The treatment advances rapidly from lower right to upper left, and the main figure of Christ is found, amazingly enough, not in the centre as was customary but at the outermost edge of the canvas. Additional Mannerist devices may be seen here in the vigorous movement motifs and the uneven use of colour, sometimes dull and then again aggressive.
