3 Baroque ► 1600 – 1750. ► From a Portuguese word “barocca”, meaning “a pearl of irregular shape.” ► Implies strangeness, irregularity, and extravagance. (inspired by later work of Michelangelo and Donatello) ► The more dramatic, the better! –

4 ART -- emotion, drama, motion, and striving; mysticism Music was religious based but also emphasized secular world – invention, tension, and emotion in music – COMPLEXITY! Ex. Johann Sabestian Bach; Jean- Baptiste Lully; Domenico Scarlatti; George Frederick Handel

5 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.
