3 Baroque  1600 – 1750.  From a Portuguese word “barocca”, meaning “a pearl of irregular shape.”  Implies strangeness, irregularity, and extravagance.  The more dramatic, the better!

4 Baroque Style of Art & Architecture  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.
