3 Baroque 1600 – 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 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.
