1 Baroque Art & Architecture

2 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! –

3 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

4 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.
