    Baroque Art & Architecture

    Baroque •  1600 – 1750

    •  From a Portuguese word “barocca”, meaning “a pearl of irregular shape”

    •  Implies strangeness, irregularity, and extravagance

    •  The more dramatic, the better!

    Baroque Style of Art & Architecture

    •  Dramatic, emotional

    •  Colors were brighter than bright; darks were darker than dark

    •  Counter-Reformation art

    •  Paintings & sculptures in church contexts should speak to the illiterate rather than to the well-informed

    •  Ecclesiastical art --> appeal to emotions

    •  Holland --> Real people portrayed as the primary subjects
